Sitting fee is $40, collected at time of sitting by Platinum Photography. Students who do not wish to purchase a package are asked to still book a photo sitting (no fee), as these photos are used for the yearbook and wall composite.
Grade 12 students in good academic standing are invited to participate in the All Saints Valedictorian Competition. As a result of the competition, students are chosen not just for the role of Valedictorian but may also be asked to participate in other graduation duties such as Master of Ceremonies and presenting toasts at the banquet. The initial meeting for the Valedictorian competition is March 5th, 2020.
A $45 fee will be charged to all grade 12s.This covers the cost of items such as gown and stole rental, facility rental, diplomas, diploma covers, programs, printing and postage costs.All outstanding fees, including the Grad Fee, must be paid in full online or at the Business Office.

A preliminary graduation list will be posted outside Student Services March 18th, 2020. This list indicates which students have completed the required courses and are currently registered in the correct/required courses for semester 2 to meet the minimum graduation requirements.
