We would like to acknowledge the support received by the District of Squamish and the Squamish Community Foundation for their support of our ceremony.
Grad 2023
It is hard to believe Howe Sound Secondary’s Class of 2023 Commencement Ceremony is here. This year’s ceremony will be hosted at the Brennan Park Recreation Centre at 1009 Centennial Way, Squamish, BC, at 7:00 pm on June 16. As the Commencement Ceremony is such a large event we want to share a few of our plans with grads and their family. Please note that parking on Loggers Lane is prohibited. Therefore, we recommend carpooling. We suggest dropping off grads and their guests at the entrance and then following the traffic coordinators to the various parking areas. Please come early as grads must be in the marshalling area at 6:40 pm.

As we approach the commencement ceremony, we would like to send some important updates and information.



This year, we anticipate some challenges in regard to parking at Brennan Park. There is a new weekend festival taking place as well as baseball games running into the evening of June 16. In order to support our guests, we will be running a school bus shuttle from HSS to Brennan Park and back again. We recommend that you drop your grad off at Brennan Park and if necessary, return to HSS for bus pick up. The bus will be picking up at HSS and dropping off at Brennan Park starting at 6 pm (going back and forth). The bus will return to Brennan Park to pick up at 9 pm going back to HSS (back and forth). You can find the bus at HSS in the bus loop area behind the school.


Commencement Rehearsal

All grads must attend the rehearsal on Thursday, June 15 from 3:45 – 5:00 pm at Brennan Park. Students will practice marshalling, the procession, seating, and crossing the stage. Attendance at the rehearsal is mandatory and critical to the flow of the evening.


On June 16, all our grads should arrive at Brennan Park before 6:40 pm and meet in their order in the Squamish Chief Activity Room.
