Grad is just ahead

  • May. 29, 2006 3:00 p.m.

Both high schools on the islands are holding their graduation ceremonies on the same day this year – Saturday, June 10.
At G.M. Dawson high school in Masset, the grad class of 25 will gather in front of family and friends at 5 pm for the ceremony, said vice-principal Cheryl MacKenzie. Refreshments will be served after the ceremony, then the grads are on to private family parties for the rest of the evening.
At Queen Charlotte Secondary, the event starts at 2 pm at the school. Former principal Clemens Rettich, now living on Vancouver Island, will be returning at the invitation of the grade 12 class to act as master of ceremonies, said teacher Katie Borserio.
As in Masset, appetizers will be served afterwards, then the students are off to private events.
The Queen Charlotte class of 16 went on their official grad class trip to Gwaii Haanas in mid-May, Ms Borserio added. They visited Skedans, stayed at the Moresby Explorers float camp, and spent an entire day at Hotspring Island, enjoying excellent weather the entire time.
