    DRY GRAD INFORMATION

    Dry Grad is not a school function. A separate fee and the appropriate forms were required to attend this event. Contact the Dry Committee if you have not registered yet.

    The countdown is on with only a few weeks left to the parent organized Grand March/Prom/Dry Grad events on June 13th! Please do not get our “Grand March/Prom/Dry Grad” event confused with the school sponsored Commencement Ceremonies (cap and gown) event on June 5th. These two are DIFFERENT EVENTS requiring DIFFERENT FEES and tickets.

    Saturday, June 13th
    Dry Grad / Reception, Grand March & Prom

    GRAND MARCH will take place outside the TRU Campus Activity Centre. Grads and parents should begin assembling at 5:10 PM. The Grand March is set to start at 5:30 pm, concluding at 7:00 pm. Outside the TRU Activity Centre, under the tent will be the 3 traditional dances:  mother-son, father-daughter, grad and date.  After these dances, parents depart.  Snacks and drinks will be available. Bring umbrellas in case of rain. TRU maps can be found at http://www.tru.ca/visit/maps.html.

    PROM DANCE will be held at the TRU Grand Hall from 7:00-11:00 pm. Food, drinks and prizes are available.

    DRY GRAD will be held at Kamloops Curling Club (downtown). Doors are open for check in from 11:00 pm – 12:00 pm. You have that 1 hour window to arrive!  Doors are closed at 12:00 am until 5:00 am. Grads will be allowed to leave prior 5:00 am with parent permission, but will not be re-admitted under any circumstances. We ask that all parents arrange for their kids to be picked up by themselves or a designate who will sign the student out upon leaving. We recommend grads not drive home after being up for almost 24 hours.

    Please be safe!
