Barrie North Collegiate Commencement
Posted on 05/02/2023
Dear Potential Graduates:

Our annual Commencement will be held on Thursday, June 29, 2023 at 2:00 p.m. in the gymnasium at Georgian College, in Barrie.

We cordially invite the members of each graduate's family to attend this time-honoured Barrie North tradition. Each graduate will receive four tickets for entry to the gymnasium. Please note that there is no reserved seating. If you don't require ALL four tickets, please return any unneeded to the office. If you require more tickets, you may request extras in the main office. These will be distributed when you pick up your gown during the week of June 12th to 16th, 2023.

Graduates receiving diplomas and certificates are to be in the hallway by the gym at 1:15 p.m. (maps and details will be provided when students pick up their gown and tickets).

Graduates will be wearing black gowns, green stoles, tassels, and memento caps. Please note that the graduates will be keeping their gowns, stoles, tassels, and caps. The cost is $25.00 (non-refundable) and is the required dress code for the ceremony. If a student has a cap and gown already, the cost will be $5.00 for the tassel and $5.00 for the stole. Please pay for your gown and cap by May 19th. Payment can be made in the front office by cash / cheque or by using School Cash On-line. Graduates are to pick up their gowns in the office during the week of June 13th to 17th, 2023 and bring it with them to the Commencement Ceremony.

To graduate you must complete 40 hours of community service hours prior to graduation, 10 of which can be from current paid employment. Please complete and submit your hours as soon as possible. June will be here before you know it!
