It was certainly not an easy year to celebrate. With covid restrictions still in place a lot of schools had to find creative ways to celebrate their graduations. The city of Rosemère did its part to make those kids feel special!
All Rosemère graduates of 2020 received congratulations from their Town Council through a short video broadcast on the town’s various communication platforms. With a magical background of the pond in Charbonneau Park, the members of Rosemère’s Town Council, accompanied by eight elementary and secondary school graduates, delivered a token of gratitude and pride to all of them, from grade 6 to university graduates! Dressed in a ceremonial robe and topped with a cap, the graduates, accompanied by applause and cries of joy, threw their cap high in the air at the end of the video, as is the tradition at the very end of a graduation ceremony. These ceremonial gestures truly mark the end of an important stage in student life.
« The municipal councillors and I are taking a few moments to highlight the exceptional work, diligence and resilience of all the Rosemère graduates. Graduation is a turning point in the lives of students and considering the exceptional circumstances of the 2020 promotions, we couldn’t stay quiet. We hope that this video will be shared widely to reach all the graduates as they deserve our congratulations », stated Rosemère Mayor Eric Westram.
The City thanked the 8 grads for their contribution to the video: Noah Fournier, Juliette Gingras, Alyssa Marceau, William Monfette, Anthony Napolitano, Gabrielle Rochon, Bronwyn Song and Noah Swaminadan.
