Valedictory Write Up

Valedictory Write Up

To: Grade 12 Students and Parents/Guardians of Grade 12 Students

As a part of the Valedictory ceremony (or filming process) this year, a short (40 Word Maximum) passage will read about each student as they cross the stage.  Each student will be responsible for submitting their own write up, though students may choose to have others - parents, siblings, friends, provide the information to be submitted. We would encourage parents and student to discuss who will submit this (sometimes we get more than one and it becomes confusing).  PLEASE WRITE IN THIRD PERSON.

Below are a few examples.

  • Mary Jones is a sports enthusiast. She played senior volleyball and loves skiing and basketball. In September, Mary will be going to Kwantlen to study Horticulture. Mary would like to thank her parents and teachers for all their endless support.
  • Steve Smith, when not studying, was often found on the mountain skiing with friends. He plans to backpack through Europe next year, and then pursue a career in outdoor adventure tourism. The highlight of his time at McMath was the trip to ____.
  • Ryan Richards enjoys helping people in the community, and loved visiting Lions Manor with the Leadership class.  They plan to study Science at UBC and hope eventually begin a career in health sciences.
  • Wendy Wu is excited to graduate and looks forward to attending post-secondary next year.  Many thanks to all who supported Wendy over the years.  
 
We request that you keep your submissions to no more that 40 words.  Please count your words and be mindful it is a formal school event.  Submissions will be editted where necessary.  Please have this form completed and submitted by Friday April 16, 2021.   Thank you!
