Saturday, June 9 marked the day that the Grade 12 class of Eaton high school were officially recognized as the graduating class of 2018 in their school.
This year, there are nine graduates, Brett Stimson, Kara Richardson, Colton Aldridge, Skye Radies, Scott Hills, Nathan Ritchie, Breanne Follensbee, Aaron Keith and Maxwell Eckstein.
The program began with a banquet, introductions of the senior class, a toast to the Queen, to parents, the staff, and finally to the graduating class, from the Grade 11 girls of Eaton school.
Following the banquet, was the official ceremony, with a singing of O Canada, and an introduction of the senior class and parents. Greetings and congratulations were brought from the Town of Eatonia, the R.M. of Chesterfield, the School Community Council and Sun West School Division.
Guest speaker, Cindy Facca, an educational assistant at the school, told a few stories and gave some life advice for the students, but still applies to anyone and everyone who is willing to listen.
”School is like a job,” Facca said. “The teacher is like the boss who gives you work to do and deadlines for completion. The other students in class are your co-workers and not everyone gets along 100 per cent, but you have to work together to get it done.For more on this story, please see the Jun. 13 print edition of The Clarion.
