The Revelstoke Secondary School 2011 grads toss their mortarboards in the air at the end of the graduation ceremony Thursday.

Congratulations grads!

Revelstoke Secondary School sent another class into the "real" world at the 2011 commencement ceremony Thursday.



Revelstoke Secondary School sent another class into the “real” world at the 2011 commencement ceremony Thursday.

The ceremony marked the end of an era for the school – it’s the last one before the school moves into its new building this Fall.

The ceremony started with the traditional photo beneath the gazebo in Grizzly Plaza. Then the grads marched from the plaza to RSS, escorted by the RCMP and a piper.

At RSS, the gym was full of family, friends and teachers. Mayor Dave Raven, trustee Annie Wilson, superintendent Anne Cooper and principal Mike Hooker all addressed the grads and attendees. Alei Mohr delivered the valedictorian address, which was followed by a humourous keynote speech by teacher Gordon Robinson.

At the ceremony the grads were introduced one-by-one and a brief bio was read about their school lives and future plans as they received their graduation certificates.

They then tossed their mortarboards in the air and went outside for lunch and the rest of their lives.

View pictures from the ceremony in the slideshow above. Below are pictures of all 62 graduates (the smallest graduating class ever, we were told).
