Virtual Graduation Ceremony

  • June 28, 2021 @ 3:00 PM

Link will be provided closer to date

Greetings Grade 12 Families,

On behalf of the Loyola Administrative Team and the Graduation Committee, we would like to thank you for your patience as we create a plan to provide a meaningful graduation celebration for our wonderful graduates of 2021.

The COVID-19 pandemic and hybrid model have created challenges to how we normally recognize and celebrate our graduates. We are required to follow protocols set by Public Health, the Ministry of Education, the HCDSB and the town of Oakville for maintaining safety and social distancing.  We remain committed to honouring as many of our graduation traditions as we possibly can under the current circumstances. 

We are working with our stakeholders to make decisions. We are in communication with the HCDSB Graduation Committee. We also have a committee of graduates working together with the staff graduation committee to help plan and organize events.

We have planned a virtual graduation celebration on Monday June 28, 2021 at 3:00 PM. We invite everyone in your family and your friends to attend. Details on how to join the ceremony and liturgy will follow closer to the date.

The ceremony will include:

  • An address from the Valedictorian and the Salutatorian as well as gospel Reader
  • Principal’s address
  • Greetings from the HCDSB
  • Presentation of our graduates
  • Presentation of graduation awards
  • Virtual graduation prayer service with a blessing from Father Allen Varlacki

To prepare for the ceremony, graduates who paid the $60 grad fee will be receiving a Graduation Gift Bag with commemorative items to help your family have a memorable celebration. These items were selected and voted on by the student grad committee.  The details of the pick-up of the Grad Bags are still to be determined but will be in your possession prior to the graduation ceremony.

Included in the Grad Bag:

  • Graduation gown, cap and tassel
  • T-shirt for the class of 2021
  • Loyola grad bucket hat
  • Loyola mug
  • A few additional surprises

We are still planning the final details for graduation photos.  The timeline thus far is:

  • Gown, cap and tassel packages to be delivered to the school by March 31, 2021
    • Gowns distributed at school by cohort April 6 to 9
    • Grade 12 classes will be called down based on their cohort to pick up their gowns
    • Cohort C students will be able to pick up their gown packages after school
  • Students can book appointments at the Pegasus Studio in Stoney Creek from April 12 to 16
  • Students can book appointments from April 19 to 23 at Loyola

A flyer and link for booking will be coming out shortly from Pegasus.  Information regarding the COVID safety protocols that will be taken during the sessions will also be communicated to students and photography staff.

Details regarding the application process for grad awards and the class valedictorian will be communicated shortly.

We are very grateful for your support and patience in these unprecedented times. We pray that God continues to bless all our graduates and their families and keeps them safe and well!

Sincere thanks,

The Loyola Administrative Team
