Graduation 2020

Graduation Image - hat and diploma.jpgThe GECDSB appreciates the importance and recognizes the value of a graduation ceremony to celebrate students’ achievements in school. The act of gathering to acknowledge that success is a significant confirmation by the community of the milestone.

However, due to the need for maintaining distance from one another during the COVI-19 emergency, a traditional convocation is not possible.

The Class of 2020 will still be provided the experience, but in a dramatically different format.

Each school will be producing a video graduation which will include many of the familiar elements including official remarks, a valedictory address and the announcement of student awards.

The video will be broadcast on YouTube at the time and the day previously arranged, prior to the school closures. Students and families will be receiving notification from their school as a reminder. The distribution of diplomas and certificates will be determined at a later time at each school.
