Stanley Humphries Secondary School grad events happen this weekend, beginning with the convocation ceremony Friday evening.

The ceremony will be held at Selkirk College at 5 p.m. and is open to the public.

The next event on the agenda will be the grad car parade which begins at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday.

The route will take the caravan from the school on 7th Ave. to 10th St. and then on up Columbia Ave. and end at the recreation complex.

Grad Parent Council president Sue Heaton-Sherstobitoff encourages the community to participate.

“We are hoping people will come out and support them as its their big day — all in their pretties!” she said. “So line up on Columbia and support this, the grad class of 2015.”

The grand march will be held at the recreation complex from 6 to 7 p.m. followed by an hour of time for guests to join the grads on the arena floor for photos and congratulations. The public is welcome to attend this event also. Following the grand march, the prom and dry grad activities will also be held at the recreation complex, making for a long and full day for this year’s batch of grads.

Kootenay Columbia Learning Centre will be holding its graduation ceremony at the Trail Campus at 1 p.m. on June 18.
