Students, parents, staff and community members celebrated two high school graduates from Calling Lake School on Saturday, December 2, 2017. The school community honoured Skyler Gagnon and Shania Gambler by organizing a ceremony, a graduation feast and a round dance. The evening began with a pipe ceremony performed by Elder, Victor Gladue. Following the pipe ceremony, Gladue spoke about the importance of education before presenting Skyler and Shania with an Eagle feather encased in personalized shadow boxes. The eagle feather symbolizes respect, honour, love, strength courage and wisdom.
