Lake Cowichan Secondary School Grade 12 students revealed their ambitious goals, Thursday, May 26, during their annual portfolio day.

Throughout the morning, students took turns sitting down with teachers, school board trustees, police officers, and other members of the public, to go through their portfolios.

“It just helps them appreciate what they’ve done,” school board trustee Diana Gunderson said, between sit downs with students.

With students seeing their portfolios more and more as a worthwhile project, Gunderson said that more and more effort has been put into them over the years.

They help with scholarship presentations, and various other things that help lead students to their end goal.

During their portfolio presentations, students were expected to tell the portfolio overseers about themselves, and then flip though what they had prepared.

Newspaper clippings, certificates, and other items that highlight their accomplishments make up their portfolios’ contents.

All 51 Grade 12 students slated to graduate from LCSS were required to prepare a portfolio; a Ministry of Education requirement. Students have been chipping away at them over the course of the past two years.

This year’s graduation ceremony is to take place at the school Saturday, June 25.

The doors to the graduation ceremony will open at 11:30 a.m., and the graduation ceremony will begin at 12:30 p.m.
