We are in the midst of preparation for Bishop O'Byrne's 2020 Grade 12 Graduation. The following information outlines the upcoming activities and important dates. Information will be updated as it is made available.

Graduation Photos

Platinum Photography will be onsite in January to book Grad photo sitting appointments. Stay tuned for announcement of those dates. Sitting dates are February 4 – 14, 2020. 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 sitting (no fee), as these photos are used for the yearbook and wall composite.

Valedictorian Competition

Each year Grade 12 students in good academic standing are invited to participate in the Bishop O’Byrne Valedictorian Competition. As a result of the competition, students are chosen not just for the role of valedictorian, but also for other graduation duties such as Master of Ceremonies and presenting toasts at the banquet. The competition dates will be announced closer to date.

Graduation Fees

A fee will be charged to cover the cost of items such as gown and stole rental, facility rental, diplomas, diploma covers, programs, printing and postage costs. When this year's fee has been added to the graduates’ accounts, an invoice will be sent out. All outstanding fees, including the Grad Fee, must be paid in full online or at the Business Office. Students will not be permitted to purchase tickets to the Graduation Banquet and Dance if there are any unpaid fees. Any concerns can be forwarded to the Business Office at 403-500-2103 ext. 313.

Graduation List

A preliminary Graduation List will be posted outside Student Services when available. 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 for Bishop O’Byrne High School. Counselors will contact parents of students who do not meet the Graduation requirements at this time. In May, the final Graduation List will be posted outside Student Services. To be on this list, students must be half way through any online courses and have at least 50% in all courses required to graduate. Students not on the list may enter an appeal. Appeals will be heard by Ms. Baker, by appointment only. Students who are not on the final Graduation List will not be eligible to “walk the stage”. This is a firm deadline and will be strictly adhered to, as a number of items, such as gowns and stoles, programs for the Convocation all depend on final numbers.
