Pomp and circumstance

It’s graduation season in the Rainy River District as students of many different schools and education institutes prepare to cross their respective stages this month and enter the next phase of their educational or professional careers. Confederation College’s Fort Frances campus held their convocation ceremony at the Townshend Theatre on Tuesday, June 14, while Seven Generations Education Institute held their own ceremony at their local campus on June 9. Both ceremonies enjoyed a return to an in-person format that saw graduates who completed their education over the past few years join with this year’s cohort of graduates to celebrate together with classmates, family and friends.
