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.)
