Grad Gowns
​Please see Ms. Exell in the Counselling Centre by (tbd) with the following info:
  • Your name (first and last)
  • Your gown size

Grad gowns are worn by all grade 12's participating in the Convocation Ceremony at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre on Saturday, June 8th during the Convocation for the Class of 2020. Wearing the grad gown into the venue and throughout the ceremony is mandatory. The gown is the student's ticket in.

If you are not participating in convocation you must tell Mr. Ruben. If students do not order a gown we will assume that they are not participating in the convocation and we will not prepare space for them in the processional, recessional or grad seating or any seating for their family to be in the audience at the venue. We will also not prepare any words for them to be spoken during the event.

Size is determined by height. The gown is designed to reach down to the mid-calf. Height should be measured while barefoot – no heels.
