NISS will make a decision

North Island Secondary School will have a decision about their grad date change by the end of June.

North Island Secondary School is expected to make a decision on its future graduation date by the end of this month, following a meeting held last Tuesday at NISS.

NISS currently holds grad ceremonies the first weekend in June, but is considering changing the date to the following weekend, the same weekend as Port Hardy Secondary School’s grad events.

This idea was brought about due to multiple scheduling conflicts around the first weekend of June, most notably the Provincial Championships for soccer that many grads participate in.

A small group of parents met in the NISS library to discuss the date change. The only concern that arose was that the date would bring grad closer to the provincial exam dates, but for the most part, there were no objections.

“It was a fairly brief meeting,” principal Lauren Deadman said. “The majority supported the decision.”

Deadman is in the process of contacting those involved with grad and is still waiting for feedback.


“We hope to be able to come to a decision by the end of June,” she said.
