Close to 400 students from the Conseil scolaire catholique Nouvelon’s 10 secondary schools will be celebrated on June 16, 23, 24 and 25, 2020. As a result of government health and social distancing measures taken to counter the spread of COVID-19, the secondary schools will honour the students completing Grade 12 through a virtual graduation ceremony.

“We wish our graduates a great deal of success in the next stages of their life. We encourage them to tap into the wealth of knowledge they have acquired in CSC Nouvelon schools and to remain outstanding and well-rounded citizens who are proud to be Catholic and Francophone and are ready to take their place in society, ”said Mr. André Bidal, CSC Nouvelon board chair.

"We congratulate our graduates for having drawn on their technological skills with such success and for showing resourcefulness, tenacity and resilience. Through this effort and their ability to surpass themselves and meet new challenges, our students can take pride in having completed their high school studies with flying colors. They can now look to the future with confidence,” added Mr. Paul Henry, director of education at CSC Nouvelon.
