High school graduation is a once in a lifetime event, but the students of Caledonia Senior Secondary School in Terrace won't be able to have their last hoorah!

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced this year's senior graduating class to find another way to commemorate this significant achievement in their young lives.

The Caledonia Parent Grad Committee, with the support of Terrace City Council, is planning to temporarily place 150 grad signs on the Grand Trunk pathway.

Each sign will feature the picture and name of a graduating student which will be placed appropriately, six feet apart running west towards the Canadian Tire.

Terrace Mayor Carol Leclerc says the council was happy to approve this request.

"They have been shortchanged in their celebrations, which is an absolute shame, so the council was on board 100 percent to support them, putting up signs along the Grand Trunk pathway. Good for the planning committee to be thinking outside of the box in these challenging times and just want to extend a huge congratulations to all of the grads this year."

The signs are planned to be installed and displayed for everyone to see from June 15th to the 21st.
