Grade 12 Graduation – Schedule of Events
Our formal graduation celebrations will be held on Friday, June 19.
The Grade 12 Graduation Ceremony video will begin at 8 am.
In addition, we will be welcoming small groups of graduates and their parents/guardians onto our Richmond Road campus between 10:45 am and 6:45 pm for short, in-person ceremonies. Students will have the opportunity to take photos on campus in their cap and gown, and participate in the celebratory Grad Bear Toss.
We are also excited to host virtual gatherings so we can see the graduates who will be unable to join us on campus.
Students and parents who are coming to campus have already received information about their groupings. Each group of no more than 50 people has been given a specific arrival time and a designated parking area. Please remain near your vehicle until you are welcomed by a SMUS host.
See below for arrival times and where to park.

We also ask that, while on campus, visitors follow the physical and social distancing guidelines from the BC Ministry of Health as it relates to interactions with individuals who are “outside your bubble.”
