Congratulations to WWS graduate, Grace Laverdiere Nascimento.
We experienced a perfectly imperfect end to the 2019-20 academic year with our Graduation Ceremony. The weather was unseasonably cool and rainy and physical distance requirements prevented us from gathering as an entire school community. At the same time, it was a ceremony filled with connection, sincerity, and deep appreciation.
A much-anticipated aspect of our annual ceremony are the gifts that our fellow Lower School and High School students present to the graduates. These gifts include songs, poems, and recitations and are intended to give the graduates a chance to reminisce on their years at WWS.
Likewise, each year’s graduating class presents the school with a parting gift.
This year, WWS graduate, Grace, created a beautiful mural which will be installed near our children’s play yard.
Grace will pursue a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree at UBC Okanagan and was the recipient of a bursary from Arts Whistler.
Thank you, Grace! We can’t wait to see what you bring into the world and wish you all the best at UBC as you pursue a degree in Fine Arts.
