Closing Ceremony

The school’s closing ceremony is held mid morning on the last day of school. The children go home at the ceremony’s end. Family and friends are invited to attend. The faculty and some classes, notably the graduating Grade Eight class, make artistic presentations. Each class teacher presents a gift that represents a notable part of the curriculum to the class teacher of that grade next year. The Grade One students present a rose to each Grade Eight graduating student just as they received their own welcoming rose in September. The ceremony ends with a song and a grand handshake, the faculty and staff bidding each student farewell for the summer.
