A special part of the ceremony is the personal message that is read about each student as they walk across the stage. We are asking for parents’ input so that we can begin to put this information together. As there are approximately 170 graduates, these messages must be brief and generally include comments on important achievements, school memories, interests and plans for the future. Valedictory messages are written based on information received from parents, students and teachers. Here are some samples from past years to give you a sense of length and what might be included:
Tracy is a sports enthusiast. She was a member of the senior grils' soccer and volleyball teams. She also enjoys skiing and basketball. In September, Tracy will be attending Kwantlen Univeristy College to pursue a career in nursing.
Jeff enjoys helping people in the community and has been actively involved in the student council. He plans to study in the faculty of science at UBC with the hopes of becoming a cardiologist.
Peter enjoys nature and loves the outdoors, skiing, hiking and rock climbing. His immediate goals is to travel, after which he would like to pursue a career in outdoor adventure tourism.
All submissions must be submitted online. The deadline to submit a Valedictory write-up is Friday Feb. 16, 2018.
