SD52 and Charles Hays Secondary outline Grad Commencement plans for June

The class of 2020 will still get a walk up and a commencement, though the celebration will be a little different from years past and be spread out through the week of June 8 to 12, consisting  of smaller groups of students as part of the School District's response to COVID-19.

The plan for graduating students and their families was revealed through the School District's Social media platforms this week.

In their information release, SD52 makes note that as the Lester Centre is not available this year due to the COVID pandemic, the venue for 2020 will be the Charles Hays Multi purpose room.

Students have been schedule in groups of 10, with a schedule mailed to their homes to advise when they will have their walk up opportunity.

On their day, students will be required to be at the school fifteen minutes prior to the scheduled time, wearing their gown, hat and tassel. That regalia will be distributed to students the week before grad.

As in a traditional graduation event, students will walk onto the stage with the traditional short synopsis of their studies and future ambitions, as well as to announce any scholarships and bursaries that they have received.

To comply with provincial measures on Social Gathering each grad may only have a minimum of 3 people in the audience.

Each ceremony will be recorded and following the full week of Commencement Lonnie Wishart will produce a video of the entire ceremony. 

The entire production will be aired on CityWest community television on the night of Grad on Friday, June 12th.

Students will also receive a copy of the ceremony through the distribution of a USB with the video of their special night in challenging times.

You can review the full outline on the commencement plans, as well as a message from the Prom Parents related to grad photos from the Charles Hays Twitter feed and SD52 Instagram account.
