Mamawi Atosketan Native School to have drive in grad

The school, just outside of Ponoka, will hold its grad on June 16

Mamawi Atosketan Native School is proud to have five students graduating from Grade 12 on June 16, 2020 at a drive in grad.

This by invitation only graduation ceremony will be the first of this kind, as it is for many schools across Canada.

Because the class is so small, each student is given seven tickets to invite family or friends, and the graduates gets to walk across a sidewalk instead of a stage.

Two of our students have already received acceptance to Burman University to pursue pre-med and business with scholarships. For some students, they are the first to graduate in their family. This is a very big moment for each of them.

Mamawi Atosketan is located on Arbor Park Road and is open to all indigenous students.
