Dry Grad 2020

As a sub-committee of the Parent Advisory Council, all Grade 12 parents are invited to participate in the Dry Grad Committee to help plan and carry out a Dry Grad event, generally held after the school's Grad Dinner/Dance. 

What is Dry Grad?

For Grade 12 students across British Columbia, high school graduation parties are an important rite of passage and jumping off point into adulthood. The convocation, the banquet, and the dance are the social events that define where high school ends and "the rest of life" begins. It is a time to celebrate, a time to say goodbye to childhood, and a time to look to the future.

Immediately after the formal ceremonies and events, many graduates continue their celebrations by attending after-grad parties, and, since the mid-1990s, more and more schools and parents are choosing to stage an after-grad party that is "dry".

A dry grad is an all-night supervised party for graduating students and their guests, with absolutely no alcohol or drugs allowed. A dry grad party immediately follows the formal convocation, banquet, and/or dance, and typically ends at 4:00AM the following morning.

Dry Grad Committee

Dry grads require the energy and devotion of a core group of parent volunteers who do the overall planning and presentation of the party. While students, teacher advisors, and school administrators are the primary organizers of the formal graduation ceremony, it is parents who normally take responsibility for organizing a dry grad party. For the event itself, as many as 50 to 100 volunteers can be required to supervise partygoers, run and organize activities, and serve food.
