ADVOCATE HARBROUR – Nova Scotia’s smallest school graduated the smallest class during graduation ceremonies on Thursday.
Jacob Collins and Mackenzie Field were present their Grade 12 certificates during a ceremony at the school with Field receiving the Governor-General Medal.
Field, the valedictorian, had some advice for his fellow students.
“Grade 12 is a tough and busy year,” he said. “You are applying for scholarships and trying to get ready for college or whatever you may be doing. There will be times when you think to yourself, ‘I can’t do this.’ I’m here to tell you can do this. All you have to do is stay calm and cool-headed.”
Field is going to the Nova Scotia Community College in Truro in September to student Advanced Career Connections, while Collins is taking online medical administration course.
