THE PLAN FOR PCS COMMENCEMENT CEREMONY – Wed, June 23
1:00 PM – 3:00 PM: The Grad Parent Committee has arranged for a photographer to be at the BACK of the BC Legislature to take photos of grads with friends and family.
2:00 PM: If it is possible (within restrictions) for a grad group photo (or multiple group photos) to be taken, this will be done at 2 PM, so all grads should aim to be at the BACK of the Legislature at that time. Please note: any questions about photos at the Legislature should be directed to the Grad Parent Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org
3:00-3:30 PM: Grads should arrive at PCS with their caps, gowns, and V-stoles sometime between 3 PM and 3:30 PM. They can be wearing them, or be prepared to put them on. All grads should be on campus by 3:30 PM.
4:00 PM: Commencement Ceremony will begin with entry of students into the ceremony space. Livestream will begin. With 90 graduates, it is not possible to know the exact length of time that the ceremony will last, but we expect it to run for approximately 2.5 hours.
Additional important notes:
Friday (June 18), there will be an end-of-day meeting for all Grade 12s. At this time, plans for the ceremony will be reviewed. Grads will also receive their cap, gown, and V-stole.
V-stole needs to be returned to the school after the ceremony (but grads can keep the cap and gown). On Friday, grads will need to leave a $25 deposit to receive a V-stole.
We hope that receiving the regalia several days in advance will provide you the opportunity to take photos with many family and friends. Grads should meet in the church at 1:45 PM on Friday (June 18) for a final assembly, followed immediately by the information meeting.
