Grade 12 students’ final assembly

What makes Aspengrove special? Today was one example. It doesn’t happen in any other school in Nanaimo.

It was our grade 12 students’ final assembly with the rest of the school. Students sang and performed for them. The entire community celebrated their journey at Aspengrove. And as the end drew near, students from our junior kindergarten class presented each of them with a gift, and in many cases, a hug. And then they walked hand-in-hand out of the gym as our oldest students escorted our youngest to their classes.

On days like this community doesn’t seem like a strong enough word for our school.
