After enduring an entire year of extreme mental hardships, students from YCDSB were finally filled with joy and hope once they heard that the premier of Ontario had not only permitted outdoor graduations, but also encouraged it. The mental well-being of YCDSB students have truly a concern; I myself can relate to this. We are asking our school board to please consider the premier’s statement and allow for an outdoor COVID-19 safe graduation to occur, while working with regional health officials. We want nothing more than for our accomplishments to be acknowledged, especially amidst all that we have been through this past year. Graduation is a rite of passage that everyone deserves, so we believe that there is no excuse as to why YCDSB would not work to give us something to remember and celebrate in a safe and legal manner. We don’t mind it being postponed to a later date, we are open to any suggestions. We understand that it may be last minute to plan for this ceremony, but from our hearts, we still believe that it is very possible and doable. A walk down the stage is truly all we ask for. We are looking forward to see what the school board does and hope they won’t let us down. From the bottom of all our hearts, we thank you.
