A total of 67 Cowichan Open Learning students graduated at a ceremony at the Cowichan Performing Arts Centre on Friday, June 24.

“That’s more than Lake Cowichan and Chemainus OLC,” said Principal Larry Mattin as he sent along these pictures.

“We gave away $21,875 dollars in scholarships and bursaries, the most ever for us, and packed over 500 people into the theatre to celebrate our grads.”

The group included eight young moms and Mattin was delighted to report that six of them are registered for post-secondary in the fall.

The celebration also included a grad banquet where Open Learning gave away more than $1,300 dollars in gifts. “We had a great night,” Mattin said.
