On June 25, 2002, the grade 6 class had a wonderful graduation ceremony.
The show began in the gym, which was decorated with students' art work and balloons.
After a speech from the principal, the students each introduced one of their colleagues who then came up to accept their certificate and then introduce the next student. There were some good comments and perhaps we'll check the transcripts and post some here.
Mr. Young and Ms. S. gave a great musical performance accompanied by the house musician, John Lloyd. They did a song called "If I had a Million Scholars". Apologies to the Bare Naked Ladies for the similarity to "If I Had a Million Dollars"
Then we proceeded to Britannia Park for a picnic. The weather looked grim but we were prepared for a little rain. After some good healthy chips and dip, veggies, bagels and drinks, the students let loose on the play structures while parents and teachers reminisced about the years at Grant and the future, for many, at Summit Alternative School.
As a grand finalé, the science guy shot two model rockets. We were prepared to film the even with a video camera, digital camera and one 35mm camera. they took off so fast, and went so high we haven't got any action pictures to show you. They both ended up in trees but we managed to retrieve one of them last night with the help of an 8 foot pole.
Good luck to all the graduates and thanks to the great teachers and parents at Grant.
