On May 26th Graduates from all 7Oaks high schools as well as Powwow clubs from schools across the division came together at Maples Collegiate for the 13th annual Grad Powwow.
Our 13th Annual Graduation Pow Wow was an amazing celebration of life, community, Indigenous culture and traditions while also highlighting the incredible pow wow clubs from all of our schools. The event began with a pipe ceremony, a delicious traditional meal prepared by our 7Oaks CVE students, followed by the grand entry of the dignitaries, graduates and school Powwow clubs, and then a welcome address from 7Oaks Elder Mary Courchene.
Guests and students were honoured in song by the many drum groups. High school students were then presented certificates of achievement and West Kildonan Collegiate student Cedar Mainville was presented with the 7Oaks Powwow scholarship. The evening continued with both school and community dancers late into the evening.
We look forward to seeing our students and the community out at next years Powwow!
