Virtual Leaving Ceremony Update–Livestream grads “crossing the stage”

Today (Jun25), many grads have opted into our socially distanced “crossing the stage” event on campus.  You can watch the livestream of the event on youtube (new link at 11am due to technical difficulties with the old one).

Burnaby North 2020 Virtual School Leaving Ceremony will go live at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, June 23rd.

Congratulations to all our Graduates and happy viewing.


This video is intended for personal viewing by students, families and friends of the graduating class of 2020 in the Burnaby School District.  Videos should not be re-published or re-broadcast.

Dear Grade 12s,

As preparations come together for your Virtual Graduation Ceremony, we would like to prepare to pronounce your name as accurately as possible when it is read out during the ceremony. If your name is generally straightforward and does not often get mispronounced (eg. John Smith), you do not need to email us. However, if your name is more challenging, is often mispronounced, or has a particular pronunciation that you would like enunciated, please write out your usual name (as it appears on class lists/daily attendance) in a clear, phonetic format. Please do not add your legal name unless that is the name that appears on attendance lists.

The body of your email should look like this:

Monica Hardjowasito


Please send an email with the subject line: Your Name – Pronunciation

e.g.  Monica Hardjowasito–Pronunciation

Example of what your email should look like.


Please do this by Friday, June 5.  Thank you.
