Students dream big

The graduating class of 2013 at Eke Me-Xi celebrate.

The graduating class of 2013 at Eke Me-Xi walked into history as the learning centre hosted its inaugural graduation ceremony at Wakas Hall last weekend.

The six students; Geoffrey Anderson, Melissa Henderson, Amanda Walkus, Mary Walkus, Valerie Walkus and Violet Walkus were greeted at the hall by a large turnout of community members, parents and school staff to celebrate the students on their big day.

After switching their tassels and tossing their caps the students returned in their finery for the evening’s walking ceremony where they were joined at the top table by other recent graduates from the community.

The celebration organizers extend their thanks to Overwaitea, Seto’s, Gwa’sala-’Nakwaxda’xw Nations, North Island College, PHSS, SD85, Dave Stevenson and all who donated their  time and efforts to making the celebration a success.
