Graduation Ceremony Information

Hello GDHS Grade 12 Families,

As our graduation ceremony on Thursday, June 6th is fast approaching, we wanted to provide our grade 12s and families with more specific details about picking up their graduation gowns and paper tickets in advance, and specifics about the ceremony itself. 

Picking Up Tickets and Grad Gowns:
Beginning today, Wednesday May 29th, students must go to the Main Office to pick up the following items:

Location and Time:
The ceremony will take place on Thursday, June 6th at Alcott Arena inside Mold-Masters Sportsplex, 221 Guelph St, Halton Hills, ON, L7G 4A8 from 6:30pm-8:30pm.

Arrival:
Graduates must arrive at 5:45pm wearing their graduation cap and gown and must head directly to Pad B to begin marshaling in alphabetical order. Parents and guests will be asked to wait outside of Alcott Arena until doors open (approximately 6:00pm).

Guest Admission:
All attendees require a ticket for entry to Alcott Arena. Parents/guests must present their ticket to gain entry. Tickets were picked up from the main office by the graduates. Please note: A School Cash Online receipt is NOT a ticket.
