And just like that it is June and we are putting a close to another school year. Our graduation ceremony was held the last weekend of May and the weather was beautiful for the celebration. At this point the Grade 12 students are all on track to earn their diplomas. Our estimate was that over 1,800 people came to honour the Grad Class of 2017.
On June 5, 2017 we wrapped up our extra-curricular program with our annual Extra-curricular Awards assembly.
On June 6, 2017 we will be hosting the year end Band Concert in the TransCanada Theatre. There will be performances by both the Junior and Senior Bands, the Jazz Band, the Choir as well as the Guitar students. Start time is 7 p.m.
The exam schedule is included in this newsletter. Please take some time to look through the schedule to make sure your students are aware of when they need to be at the school for their final exams.
As this is the last newsletter of the year, I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for all that you have done to support the school this year. It has been a great year at OHS
