The Oak Bay High graduating class returns to celebrating with the community Friday at Willows Beach. The graduates gather with family, friends, classmates and community members to show off outfits, and share moments ahead of grad celebrations.
The tradition of a different neighbourhood hosting a block party each year shifted just ahead of the COVID-19 pandemic. The 365 grads in the class of 2019 hit Willows Beach instead.
In 2020 and 2021 parents and schools found other ways to celebrate graduates in less public ways.
The grads of 2022 gather at Willows Beach May 20 at 2 p.m. for photos before heading by bus for a group photo at the legislature followed by their dinner and dance.
The class holds its recognition ceremony June 23 at the University of Victoria.
