Graduation 2017 - Wednesday, June 28th...
Please find a quick overview of Grad below.
Graduates will receive details, along with 3 tickets* for entry and seating for the Main Auditorium, in their Graduation Invitation. GRADUATES DO NOT NEED A TICKET - YOUR SEAT IS RESERVED!
Graduation Invitations are distributed at Grad Breakfast (May 26th). Please refer to the "Grad Breakfast" event posting on the SWC website for more info.
WHO: SWC Graduates, Class of 2017
WHAT: Commencement Ceremony, aka GRAD
WHERE: Bethany Community Church, 1388 Third St., St. Catharines
WHEN: Wednesday, June 28, 2017.
Registration Table for Grads 5:00 p.m. - 5:45 p.m. (Every Grad needs to be checked in at the Registration Table at this time; once you are registered you will proceed backstage and you will not be available to family and friends until after the ceremony).
The official ceremony will begin at 6:30 p.m.
WHY: To celebrate, to honour, and to recognize the achievements of our SWC Graduates as they prepare to leave secondary school and move on to their next journey.
*In order to ensure that each parent/guardian of each graduate is able to secure a seat in the Main Auditorium, 3 tickets are being assigned to each graduate for his/her parents/guardians.
The ceremony will be live-streamed from the Main Auditorium into other seating/viewing areas at Bethany (e.g. Fireside Room, Cafe, Lobby) and all are welcome to join the SWC staff at one of these viewing areas.
If a graduate has 4 parents/guardians, the graduate must speak directly with Ms. Siemiaszko (do not leave her a message!) a.s.a.p. and definitely before Friday, June 23, 2017. Additional parent/guardian ticket requests WILL NOT be accepted after this date.
("What if I only have 1 or 2 parents/guardians, and I have 3 tickets?". We believe that the graduate should decide how their 3 tickets for the Main Auditorium ceremony are assigned.)
