Grade 12 Important Info

Important Updates regarding Graduation


Please check your school email for some very important information and reminders!!

This is an important message regarding grad photos and virtual commencement. As of late yesterday we have been given permission (assuming the stay at home order is lifted as scheduled) to proceed with our grad photos and video recording of grads for our virtual commencement. I know this is short notice but we are thrilled that this will be able to happen on Thursday June 3rd & Friday June 4th. Here are the key things you need to know:

  • Photos / videos will be done by appointment
  • Appointments are to be booked through Edge Imaging. If you have not booked an appointment please visit:  https://booking.edgeimaging.ca/portal/book/ORI
  • Students scheduled for June 3rd and 4th - appointments will remain unchanged
  • All May 31st and June 2nd appointments will need to be rescheduled  (these students were notified by Edge)
  • June 1st appointments were moved to June 4th (all appointments were notified by Edge)
  • If you have questions about your booking date or time please email:  msegriff@edgeimaging.ca

 

Day of your appointment information

  • You will enter through the front doors, staff will check you in. You must confirm that you have passed the COVID self-assessment for school prior to entering the school. You must wear a mask the entire time (except for your photo / video moments)
  • You will be directed to the lower forum
  • You will be given a grad gown to wear (to be returned immediately following your photo/video – gowns will not be reused until they have been laundered and quarantined for 72 hours)
  • You will also be given a grad cap (this is yours to keep)
  • You will be directed to enter the caf to meet with your photographer
  • After your photo(s) you will go through the side door into the drama room for your video shoot
  • During the video, you will receive a scroll (yours to keep) and asked to state your name followed by either your plans or a thank you to whomever, etc. The videographer will help you if necessary. You will have approximately 10 to 15 seconds of air time. Of course, if you are not comfortable speaking – that’s ok. We’d still really like you to be part of the commencement ceremony.
  • Once that is done you will be asked to remove the grad gown and exit the building.
  • Due to the public health restrictions there can be no grouping inside the school and there is to be no loitering outside the school. You are certainly welcome to take a couple of quick pics outside of the school as long as you maintain physical distancing. Also recall, masks are a requirement on school property even when outdoors.

 

We realize that virtual classes are happening on these days. Teachers are aware that there will be disruptions. We also realize this is short notice. All we can ask is that students do their very best to have this happen on these two days. We will be working from 7:45am to 4:00pm to try to fit everyone in. If you are completely unable to make it in on these days please know that we may be able to have a small number accommodated on a “make up” date of Mon June 14th. Please recognize that we simply cannot have lots of students ask to be moved to this date. We are hoping we can get almost everyone accommodated this week.

 

Again, we realize this is short notice but appreciate everyone doing their best to make it happen. If you have questions, please call the school. Thanks.


June 30th:  Graduation Drive Up and Pick Up Diplomas/Awards - more details to follow!

Composite grad photos will be available in the fall.

What's happening this spring:

This year, we are hosting a series of presentations to cover everything that would have been available at our in-person event, starting on March 16.  More details will come shortly, so please keep an eye on our website for updates:  welcome.uwo.ca/presentations

This presentation series includes:

 - Your Next Steps What happens after you receive an offer of admission and how to prepare before September

 - Faculty-Specific Presentations including mini lectures and student panels

 - Non-academic Sessions with Residence, Student Experience and Indigenous Services.  Learn more about what it's like to be a student at Western.

Admission Updates

A reminder that many of our 101 students who have received an offer of admission, will have a decision deadline of June 1st.  We encourage students to check their offer details in case their deadlines are different, and we recommend that students accept early.  For students who have applied to Ivey for AEO (Advanced Entry Opportunity) admission, Ivey will release their decisions separately from us traditionally between late March and Mid May.

Accepting another school's offer of admission through the OUAC (Ontario University Application Center) does not have an impact on their Western choice(s) as long as a decision hasn't been made on their application.  If we release an offer at a later date, students can cancel any earlier acceptances they've made and accept Western if they've changed their mind.  Also, accepting an offer from a university outside of Ontario will not have an impact on our ability to consider you for an offer of admission to Western.

With the exception of Nursing, if a program is still open on the OUAC, students can apply.  However, applications that come in after January 15th, will be reviewed pending space and availability in the program.

Lastly, for any student who has indicated that English is not their first language, we have decided to accept Duolingo tests for admission consideration to Summer and Fall/Winter 2021.  A minimum overall score of 115 is required; subscore results must be submitted with no section less than 100.  April 16th is the last date for us to receive English Proficiency test results from 101 applicants for consideration for the final round of offers in May.

We want to make sure your students can still ask us their questions every:

  • Wednesday 2:00 - 4:00 pm EST
  • Thursday 1:00 - 3:00 pm EST

During these times, we will offer drop-in virtual Zoom Office Hours. No appointment necessary!

We are offering this in addition to hosting frequent virtual presentations, virtual tours and a virtual open house. If students want more information sent from Western, they can sign up here.
