A unique commencement exercise that demonstrates resilience

The 2020 year of commencement has been very different at Saugeen District Senior School (SDSS), but no less moving.

While students, teachers and staff could not meet in the ‘normal’ in-person way, SDSS still managed to recognize those students who have graduated and who are moving forward in life.

                                            Guidance counsellor Susan Dolphin directed traffic

On October 8th, the grade 8 students received their diplomas and are now moving into grade 9, the first formal year of ‘high school’.  Then, on October 9th, grade 12 graduates received their diplomas as they get ready to move on to a new chapter in their education.

                                               Staff and teachers were there to cheer students on

With the drive-by presentations spread over almost three hours, Saugeen Times was only able to capture a few of the graduates and their families.
