Bodwell’s 24th annual graduation ceremony took place last Friday 20th March 2015 at 1:15pm in the school gymnasium. The event was well attended both in-person and streaming online by students’ family members and friends. The event lasted just short of 3 hours and was packed full of great speeches, proud moments of achievement and of course, the graduating class of 2015 receiving their scrolls.
The official photographs will be arriving soon so please check back early next week. Also, check this post about the graduation boat cruise & prom that took place on Saturday 21st March.
