Graduation 2018 will take place on Monday, June 18 at 7 pm and will include an

evening commencement ceremony and performance at the Northern Alberta Jubilee

Auditorium. We are pleased that this venue has been able to meet our needs in a variety of areas.The design of the Jubilee Auditorium has excellent sightlines and comfortable seating for our guests and the facility is designed for optimal sound and production value. We have also obtained exclusive rights for the evening which prevents any overlapping with other high school graduation ceremonies sharing the same facility.

 

The event after the ceremony has been changed to Lister Hall which is in walking distance from the Jubilee Auditorium (please see attached map). The reason for the change is that the amount of people we are hosting does not meet fire regulations of the Jubilee Auditorium Lobby.

 

We are pleased to have access to this larger space, with a dance floor for our DJ, with lots of seating areas with tables including an outdoor seating area. Following the ceremony all graduates, families and friends, and staff will be able to celebrate from 9:00-11:00 pm.at Lister Hall.

 

Guest tickets for the entire event are $25.00+GST per person which includes

ceremony, reception and a dance.   Skyward Motion Pictures will also be filming the entire event and offering a commemorative DVD featuring documentation of the ceremony and concert, as well as a ‘Behind the Curtain’ look at this event. This once in a lifetime keepsake will also allow loved ones to see the special moments as their student prepares to ‘take the stage’.  Each DVD is $25.00 + GST.  Tickets and DVDs will be available for purchase online beginning Tuesday, May 7, 2018.  Graduates do not have to purchase a ticket for themselves.
