Celebrating 2020 graduates during COVID-19

July 9, 2020

The class of 2020 is marking their graduation under truly unprecedented circumstances.

Since traditional convocation ceremonies have been postponed until deemed safe, LaSalle College Vancouver and LaSalle College Vancouver High School had to find other ways to commemorate their graduating students.

Earlier in March, LaSalle College Vancouver (LCV) transitioned its traditional Graduate Portfolio Show event and Outstanding Achievement Award ceremony online, amid the outbreak of COVID-19. As the province moved into Phase 3 of the pandemic and the campus welcomed back students at the beginning of the month for select specialized classes, graduating students had the opportunity to pick up their diplomas and get their photos taken with LaSalle College Vancouver's President, Jason Dewling - while adhering to health and safety guidelines.

LaSalle College Vancouver High School | Class of 2020

LaSalle College Vancouver High School also had their inaugural class of 2020 graduating last week. Grade 12 students were greeted at their homes by School Principal Paul Cohee, who presented them with their diploma. 

"Graduation is a milestone that is often celebrated with family, friends, and community. It is an important event that signifies progression from one stage of life, to the next. It represents success, progress, and growth. This year, our four high school graduates could not truly take that moment to bask in the afterglow of the celebration of their hard work and then experience the depth of happiness that comes from this moment of feeling important. At LCV High School, we took the celebration to our students!" - Paul Cohee, Principal at LaSalle College Vancouver High School.
