On October 8th, the long awaited grad cruise took place for the soon to be graduating grade 12’s! The excitement was evident throughout the day. In the morning, grade 12’s were seen wearing their suits and styling their hair in the washrooms. In the afternoon, everyone exited the school as soon as possible to get ready. At night, the grade 12’s partied, danced, and laughed like there was no tomorrow.
