The Grade 12 Media Class presented a remarkable movie, "007," which showcased some major talent.
A slide show presentation by the Yearbook Club offered a look back at KDSS, from Christmas until now.
And two teachers were honoured as they retired: John Hannivan and Susanna Everingham.
Everingham thanked her colleagues and her students for a great time at KDSS.
"I have been blessed with 34 years of teaching," she said. "Time passes quickly when you're having fun."
She has travelled extensively but always returned to Kincardine, teaching for the last three years here.
To the graduates, she said, "Love to the fullest, laugh often and love your family and friends. Be polite, give back, and be happy."
