General Grad Info:

WHO: SWC Graduates, Class of 2018
WHAT: Commencement Ceremony, aka GRAD
WHERE: Bethany Community Church, 1388 Third St., St. Catharines
WHEN: Wednesday, June 27, 2018.
Registration Table for Grads 5:15 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, or other extentuating family circumstances, the graduate must speak directly with Ms. Siemiaszko (do not leave her a message!) after Grad Invitations have been distributed and definitely before Friday, June 15, 2018. On Monday, June 18th, all extra ticket requests will be considered and extra tickets will be distributed to students that week.
Additional parent/guardian ticket requests WILL NOT be accepted after this time and once the process is complete.
("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.)
