Convocation Information 2022

​Bakerview Centre for Learning's 2022 Convocation information:

Date: June 14, 2022  

Time: 3:30 pm 

Location: Abbotsford Arts Centre at 2329 Crescent Way, Abbotsford B.C. V2S 3M1 

Each graduate is permitted to invite up to 4 guests.

 

Arriving at the Abbotsford Arts Centre / Lining Up 

 As the parking lot is adjacent to Abbotsford Senior Secondary, we recommend grads and guests arrive for 3:00 pm.  The parking lot will be clear of Abbotsford Senior staff and students by 3:00 pm and there is ample parking.  If you arrive before 3:00 pm, expect some traffic. 

Graduates should arrive in their cap and gown, which will be distributed in early June.  

Upon arrival, grads will make their way to the Abbotsford Centre Addition to line up and prepare for their entrance.  Guests should make their way into the Abbotsford Centre Auditorium to find their seats. 

The ceremony will start promptly at 3:30 pm with grads entering the auditorium in alphabetical order. 

 

Crossing the Stage 

Students will have a professional photo taken of them as they cross the stage.  That photo will be available for pick from the Bakerview Centre for Learning office by June 25th.  We will message families once photos have arrived. 

Once the grad's picture is taken, they will return to their seats for the end of ceremony.

 

Leaving the Stage / Exiting 

At the conclusion of the graduation ceremony, grads will exit the auditorium in alphabetical order. 

We ask guests to remain seated, so grads are visible as they exit. 

 

Reception 

Immediately following the ceremony, grads and guests are invited to a reception in the Abbotsford Arts Addition (next to the auditorium). 

 There will be opportunities for photos and light refreshments (desserts and punch) will be served. 

 

Live Streaming 

Our intention is to live-stream the grad ceremony on June 14, 2022 so guests can watch and celebrate from home. Once confirmed, details will be messaged home and added to our website.

 

Grad Fees 

2022 Grad Fees are $45.00 and can be paid on School Cash Online.   

If you have any questions, please reach out to Sherry Reimer in our main office.

 

Grad Celebration Lunch

We are thrilled to host a brand new grad event for our 2022 grads!

June 17, 2022 at Red Robin Restaurant - 33011 South Fraser Way, Abbotsford, BC V2S 2A6

Time: 11:00 am

Students will arrive at Bakerview Centre for Learning at 10:45 for some photos in the gym, then board a school bus to Red Robin for a lunch extravaganza and following lunch, celebrate with cake.  After lunch, students can return to school via bus, or arrange their own rides home (with parent permission). 

The cost of this event has been included in grad fees.

We encourage grads to dress up as this is a celebration and an opportunity to showcase your grad wear, but formal wear is not a requirement. We want grads to feel comfortable.  If you need support finding grad celebration wear, please reach out to someone on staff.

Guardians have been emailed a link to a permission form and students have been sent a link to RSVP.  If they did not receive one, they should contact their teacher.

Next Steps 

Students have been emailed a link to RSVP to both the Grad Lunch Celebration and the Graduation Ceremony. Please be sure to RSVP before June 5th.  Any questions – ask any staff member.

We are waiting for student cap and gown packages to arrive – we will message families once they are ready for pick. 

Grad photo proofs have arrived and are ready for pick up in the main office.  If you had grad photos taken on May 19th, we will message once those proofs arrive. 

 

Please contact us at the school if you have any questions.
