A secondary school in Saint-Hyacinthe has not spared efforts to close the course of its 170 graduates beauty, visiting each of them for their hand in their album, on the air resounding with the song Celebration.
“It really surprised me. As I was a mile from the road in the field, I did not understand too much what was happening. I was not expecting for them to come up here ! explains the ending Matis Laroche, who works in the family vineyard. I found it very touching, it was a very nice gesture of coming to see us. “
For four days, professors and staff members of école secondaire Saint-Joseph in Saint-Hyacinthe have travelled long distances to board their three electric cars sponsored to go to surprise the graduating class, one after the other.
Dressed in their robes, they presented themselves in their students or their work – with the consent of parents – by honking, to give them the album of the graduating class, the mosaic of their photos as well as a letter that they had written to themselves at the beginning of the secondary.
“We wanted to give a little “oumpf” at the end of the year special, ” says Karine Boucher, responsible for the life of the school.
At this school, the staff is very close to the students, says Mylène Gaudette, the mother of Matis. “It was very significant. At this time, talk to graduates, this is really a chord for a parent. It has looped the loop, ” she said.
