On Saturday, the Canadian Heritage Society will be celebrating its 50th anniversary.
The event will include the unveiling of the nation’s first official yard decoration, a maple leaf that was unveiled on July 7, 1962, marking the 50th birthday of the school system.
The ribbon was a one-of-a-kind, custom-made piece of fabric made from fabric that was purchased in the Canadian market.
It’s not just a simple ribbon, said Janine Pardu, executive director of the Heritage Society.
It has a unique character.
It has a beautiful design and it is a unique piece of art, she said.
The society’s 50th annual graduation cap ceremony will take place in front of a live audience on Saturday, and the ribbon will be handed out at the ceremony.
The crown will be presented to the school district, and an audience will listen in on the presentation.
It will be a special day, said Pardus, adding that it will be the first time the ribbon has been handed out to students.
“It will mean a lot to a lot of people.
It will mean an immense amount to a very, very small number of people, I think,” she said, adding she was not surprised by the high turnout.
The first school in Canada, the Victoria School District, opened in 1884, and since then, its students have graduated with pride.
“I think that’s what’s important.
To celebrate this anniversary, we will be having the first graduation cap at a school where we’ve never had a graduation cap.
It’s something that’s been done here for a very long time,” said Parshar, who will be joining the Victoria students for the event.”
For a 50-year period, we’ve had the first graduating cap.
That’s a great achievement, that’s something to celebrate.
The next 50 years will be another great 50 years for the school, but I’m sure the students will feel proud,” she added.
A plaque at the school’s entrance will be dedicated to the honour of the honourable sir and Mrs. A.L.M. Daugherty, who founded the school in the late 1880s.
In addition to the ribbon, the new graduates will be awarded a graduation medal, and they will also receive a commemorative plaque.
The ceremony will be streamed live on the CBC website, and a number of the students have asked to be allowed to wear the ribbon for their graduation ceremony.
“The ribbon is an important symbol, and for us, as a school, it’s an opportunity for us to show our gratitude to the community for the contribution that we’ve made to our province,” said Mark O’Mara, president of the Victoria Board of Education.
Pardu said that, as she sees it, the ribbon represents a symbol of a community that has continued to contribute to the education of young people in the province.
“That ribbon is a symbol that we have contributed to our community and our province, and it’s a symbol, too, that we’re going to continue to do so, but at the same time, I also believe that it’s also an opportunity to show that we appreciate that there are many other schools out there that have not been given that same honor,” she continued.
A small number have been awarded diplomas.
“We’re not sure if it will go to every student, but we hope that every one of them will get a diploma,” said O’Bara.
The graduating class is now seniors, and Pardi said she is sure that all the seniors will be graduating with a diploma.
“You know, I know the students that are graduating and are going to be seniors, so that’s a big thing,” she explained.
“I hope they will be able to go out and give back to their community and their community’s community.
It just shows the generosity and the love and the affection that we share here in this community.”
