Graduation Message from the Minister of Education

This school year has been an exceptional one. 

To celebrate Ontario’s students, the Premier announced that in-person graduation ceremonies could take place. Many teachers and schools did what they could to allow students to see their friends in person for the first time in months.  Although these graduations were not what we’ve come to expect, it is important that we recognize this milestone for those graduating from Kindergarten, Grade 6, Grade 8 and Grade 12.

Please see the video links below, with messages of congratulations to the Kindergarten and Grade 6 graduates. To view the videos with French subtitles, please select that option in the video caption settings.

Thank you for your support this year, and best wishes for a safe and enjoyable summer.

Stephen Lecce
Minister of Education
