  • ​​​​​Grad 2020 - Citations

Important - Please Read

Citation Guidelines
Citations are an important part of convocation. They are read as students walk across the stage to receive their diploma. 

They are also printed in the yearbook next to the student’s Grad photo.

  • ​If a student is participating in Convocation, they need to have a citation. 
  • In the event that a citation is not written, the Advocacy teacher will write a citation for the student.
  • Citations must be no more than 200 Characters.  Note - Spaces and punctuation count. Text speak is not acceptable.
  • This is formal event. Citations must be appropriate.  Inappropriate citations will be rejected and a generic one will be substituted in. 
  • Citations are going to be read. They must be in third person. 
  • If  a student is including a quotation in their citation, the quotation must be introduced. For Example:  
    Jennifer would like to leave you all with the words of Nelson Mandela…      This is necessary and counts toward the 200 Character limit.  The author of the quotation must be included. 
  • Students do not need to include anything about being an Honour Roll student and /or a French Immersion student.   
  • This information is added later and is separate from the citation.
