Another school year has come and gone in the blink of an eye! While this year ended in a way no one could have imagined, it was still an extraordinarily successful year!

As the semester wrapped up with culminating assignments and exams, Chisholm Academy with the direction of Mr. Adam Bernstein, Associate Director, was preparing for graduation festivities.

On June 18, premiering on Youtube Live at 8 pm, Chisholm Graduation Ceremony took place (the video can still be viewed on YouTube). 

With almost 200 viewers tuning in for the event, Chisholm students, families and staff all had a moment to honour our 2020 graduates and award recipients. The event was a perfect testament to a year marked by resilience. 

Paired with cheers and applause, tears and laughter – the graduation ceremony was an emotional rollercoaster in a great way. The chatbox was definitely blowing up with excitement! Some noteworthy speakers include Grade 8 Valedictorian, Ruben M., and Grade 12 Valedictorian Samuel A., alongside speeches from Director Dr. Howard Bernstein and Principal Mrs. Sylvia Moyssakos (to name a few). Viewers were treated with special guest appearances by 2019 Raptors Champion Danny Green, singer Natasha Bedingfield, Olympian Hayley Wickenheiser and many more. Each provided a special message for students, teachers and parents! 

YourTV’s Local News in Halton picked up the amazing story of Chisholm’s special graduation and aired it on Wednesday, June 24. Check out the link from 2:10 to approximately 5:10.

While this year wasn’t quite what we expected and our graduating students didn’t get the same send-off we’re used to, we hope that our Chisholm families recognize how special each and every student is to us.

All the best in this next chapter, keep in touch, congratulations and stay well!

Until we can meet again,

Your Chisholm Family
