Charles Hays Graduation Day 2013
Graduation ceremonies for Charles Hays take place tonight at the Lester Centre, a salute to the students, teachers, support staff and administrators, as another group of young adults prepares to head off into the world.
Gowns, diplomas, speeches, awards and photos will be the order of the night.
Proud family and friends will celebrate with the Grads tonight, as they are recognized for their achievements and make their plans for the future.
The CHSS graduation marks the end of their SD52 schooling (though they still have a month to go with exams and such through June) with many set to embark for University or college studies at locations in all directions.
Some will stay closer to home, with NWCC and UNBC destined to provide the next stage of their education, while others will spread out across the country, having long ago submitted their applications and confirmed their spots at university and college campus locations from coast to coast.
The Lester Centre ceremony tonight, heralds the start of the awards season for the school District as the school year comes to a close.
Still to come will be ceremonies for the Pacific Coast School and Prince Rupert Middle School, while each elementary school also will have its own recognition day.
But tonight, is for the High School Graduates, as the transition from high school to whatever may be ahead begins.
The Class of 2013 is ready for their next adventures, Best Wishes to all on their night of celebration tonight.
