As we get into the final two months of this school year, we have a lot of activity going on at OHS. The final sports seasons are underway with Track & Field, Rugby, Boys Soccer and Badminton. Throughout one school year over twenty athletic teams function in the school and this would not be possible without school and community volunteers.
On May 3, 2017 we will be holding a special day for Grade 10 students in regard to responsible choices. In conjunction with emergency services, we will be spending the day showing the dangers of drinking and driving. This has always been well-received and we like to address this with our Grade 10 students as they are beginning drivers.
Graduation is on May 26 and 27, 2017. The Cap and Gown Ceremony is from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday night (May 26). On Saturday (May 27) the Program begins at 7:30 p.m. and lasts about two hours. Both of these events are open to the public. Please note that seating is limited.
Thank you for your support of Olds High School. We are proud of all the students’ accomplishments.
