Around 350 graduating students, with their friends and families, filled the North Peace Arena, Wednesday, to celebrate the students’ accomplishments and wish them well in their future endeavours.

The school’s principal, Daniel Vecchio, says that even though he’s leaving the school this year, he is happy that he was able to get to know each student individually.

He added that he hopes the students take on challenges and do whatever makes them happy.

School District 60 Superintendent Larry Espe addressed the graduating students at the ceremony saying that they should all step outside their comfort zone and remember to leave to leave their mark on the world.
