The Halton District School Board will host open houses in May for students to select, at no cost, donated formal wear for upcoming prom or graduation events. Called Fashion Forward, students will have the opportunity to view and try on formal wear in a friendly and welcoming environment. Students may select from a variety of new and gently-used attire that has been donated for proms, graduations and other special events. There are many different styles, colours and sizes of formal dresses available as well as suits, shirts, ties and shoes.
The dates to browse for formal wear are Monday, May 9 and Tuesday, May 17. Each open house runs from 2:30 - 6:30 p.m. and will be held at Elsie MacGill Secondary School (1410 Bronte St S, Milton).
Students are required to bring student identification to the open house they attend.
There were three applications for GDHS Valedictorian 2022. The video submissions are included in our selection form found HERE. All grade 12 students are asked to please take a moment to cast their vote before the end of the day on Friday, April 8th (voting closes at 11:59 pm). The valedictory address will be part of our Year End Celebration.
Only those people in the GDHS Class of 2022 (ie: students currently in their grade 12 year) are permitted to cast votes and must do so through their HDSB account. This form will be recording your email address, which will then be automatically cross referenced against our list of Class of 2022 members. Only Mr. Gallant and Ms. Jarvis will have access to the Google Sheet for the cross-referencing of the votes and will protect the confidentiality of voters.
GDHS Graduating Student Awards and Scholarships
GDHS distributes a number of awards and scholarships each year to graduating students. Students are able to nominate themselves for consideration of these awards.
The GDHS Awards Committee will review all graduating student nominations to determine these school-based award recipients. To nominate yourself for consideration, please complete the self-nomination form:
This form is open for submission until Monday, May 2, 2022.
Successful students will be notified by HDSB email prior to the end of the school year and will be recognized during the Class of 2022 Celebration Ceremony. Some awards have financial prizes; winners of financial amounts will be expected to write a thank-you card to the community donor that provided the award.
