Graduation Ceremony


School Letter

The school letter is awarded to graduates who have made outstanding contributions to our school community during their high school years and who model our school motto “Love & Dignity”. We strongly encourage students to submit the record of activities, (the application) at the end of each year. The activities need to be signed by teachers. If you wait until the end of grade 12 you may have difficulties tracking down teachers from a few years ago.
