Students from the King’s Grad Committee have organized a full slate of fun activities in advance of King’s 229th Encaenia. Starting with a Mimosa breakfast on the morning of May 29, graduating students and their families will be able to listen to a final Foundation Year Program lecture with Dr. Laura Penny and Dr. Eli Diamond, enjoy a barbecue in the Quad and partake in more than a few nights in the beloved HMCS King’s Wardroom. There is no cost to attend any of the grad week events, except for the President’s dinner, which costs $30 and for which tickets are limited.
The photo of the graduating class will be taken on the library steps on May 31 at 2:45 p.m. Families are invited to take pictures, and a photographer will be on hand to take official photos that will be made available at no cost.
