Congratulations Class of 2021!
We are proud of you and excited to celebrate your accomplishments!

In this unusual year, you’ve demonstrated your innovation, caring and social responsibility. Your achievements and contributions have made an impact on our school and beyond. As you get ready to start a new chapter, it’s time to say ‘21 and Done!

We will be hosting a video commencement ceremony for all graduates, including those who attended OCV this year, and their families.

You are invited to join our virtual commencement on:

Friday, June 25, 2021
1:00 p.m.


Here are some more ways to join in our celebrations...

Take a Selfie 
A “Congratulations Class of 2021” sign will be installed in front of the school in June. Depending on the lifting of the Ontario Stay-at-Home order, you can use this sign to take photos of you in your grad cap – but please remember to stay safe and follow appropriate physical distancing rules.

Celebrate on Social Media
Share a photo of yourself with your grad cap and tag your social media posts with #21andDone and #OCDSB. The District will promote and re-post these posts on district social media.


West Swag Arriving Next Week

Many of you were informed when you visited the school that we have one more swag/gift but it has been held up in transit.  We expect it to arrive sometime next week and will email you with pickup instructions once it has arrived.  Please ensure you check your OCDSB email.

Curbside Pick-up Drop-off opportunities for students who missed this week

For those students who chose NOT to book and attend the in-person graduate recognition, you can do a curbside drop-off and pick-up of your items next week. The school will not be mailing out diplomas/awards.

Drop-off - Borrowed technology, textbooks, and other items.

Pick-up - Diploma package(diploma, transcript, class composite picture, awards, and certificates), grad swag, grad cap.

Note: We are doing curbside drop-off/pick-up only. On arrival at the school, students/parents must call the main office at 613-832-2773 and a staff member will deliver the items to you outside the school main entrance.  Please note we can only give your Diploma package etc to you or a parent.
