The Southwest Booster - - FRONT PAGE -

The Swift Cur­rent Com­pre­hen­sive High School class of 2018 gath­ered for a fi­nal time as Grade 12 stu­dents to cel­e­brate their grad­u­a­tion on June 27.

Last Wed­nes­day’s grad­u­a­tion cer­e­mony boasted the theme “Let the Jour­ney Be­gin”, with the cap and gown cer­e­mony serv­ing as their for­mal farewell to High School.

Se­nior Pin Re­becca Treen and Se­nior Stick Em­mett Guider de­liv­ered the farewell ad­dress to the grad­u­ates, re­mind­ing them of the long jour­ney they have been on to­gether start­ing with the first day of Kinder­garten through to their fi­nal day as stu­dents.

“Let’s en­joy, em­brace and cel­e­brate all of the yes­ter­day’s ex­pe­ri­ences that have brought us here to­day, be­cause be­fore we know it, to­day will be­come yes­ter­day,” Treen said.

“And to­mor­row we be­gin to ex­plore our dreams. As we move for­ward in our lives we will fol­low the paths that have been af­forded to us.” Guider added.

They re­flected that the lessons they learned through school has pre­pared them for tack­ling their fu­ture.

“Life won’t be handed over on a sil­ver plater. We’ll know what it’s like to work hard for some­thing, how re­ward­ing it feels to achieve our goals,” Guider said.

“We all have the skills and am­bi­tions to do in­cred­i­ble things, and we’ll never re­ally be alone,” Treen said.

“The op­por­tu­ni­ties are end­less. We’re so ex­cited to see what the fu­ture holds for ev­ery­one.” Guider said, with Treen adding “These may be con­sid­ered to be the best days of our lives, but the best is yet to come.”

Their ad­dress also ex­tended a spe­cial thank you to their par­ents and teach­ers.

“You have all made our High School ex­pe­ri­ence a great one, full of great mem­o­ries. The count­less hours you have spent push­ing us to our po­ten­tial have not gone un­no­ticed. None of us would be here to­day with­out you, and we thank you for that,” Treen said as a thank you to their teach­ers.

“We will grow to ap­pre­ci­ate your as­sis­tance as we move on in our lives, and re­al­ize truly how much you’ve done for us. We won’t al­ways have you by our sides to look out for us. We won’t al­ways be able to de­pend on you for the lit­tle things,” Guider said in ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the par­ents.

Danielle Beau­doin Kwan was an­nounced as the Gov­er­nor Gen­eral Award win­ner for SCCHS with a 95.5 per cent av­er­age in Grade 12. She has been ac­cepted to the Univer­sity of Cal­gary to pur­sue en­vi­ron­men­tal stud­ies.
