The attending students looked mature in their finery. The students chose the theme 'Rockin' the 80's' and their quote was 'Where we're going, we don't need roads' from the movie Back to the Future. These young adults see themselves as carving their own path with the support, education and guidance they have received along the way.
The guest speaker was Melody Larson. Larson has worked at Livingstone School for a number of years. Many of those on stage were in her class for grade one, and the class saw it fitting she be a large part in the graaduation ceremony for their time at Livingstone School.
