* Dear Parents/Guardians:
This is our first year at a new location for Prom. We chose the Halifax Marriot because it was the only available venue that we believed would meet the needs of our students. It offers us the ability to celebrate their success in a special and stylish way in downtown Halifax. With this change comes some change to our traditional schedule as noted above. The Halifax Marriot didn’t have the space for us to host a Parent/Guardian Reception, or a parade of graduates this year. Unlike our previous venue the Halifax Marriot is a public hotel on the main floor. They ask that you arrange for family pictures at a location in advance, such as the Public Gardens, because they won’t be able to accommodate every parent and guardian indoors in the public lobby of the hotel.
Wednesday, June 27th @ Halifax Exhibition Centre
10:00 am – rehearsal and only time for grad gown distribution
Grad barbecue is held at the school immediately following the rehearsal
* Dear Parents/Guardians/Graduates:
It is unfortunate that the Graduation Rehearsal is the morning after Prom, but it was unavoidable. There were no alternate dates. Please make sure that you attend the rehearsal. It is the only opportunity to get your gown in advance for family photographs, and there is important information and practice that needs to happen to ensure that graduation runs smoothly for each of you. We appreciate your support so that we can all make graduation day the best it can be for you, the graduates, your friends and your families.
