Lord Tweedsmuir High School grads

Graduation, a rite of passage celebrated around the world, is the subject of the latest exhibit at the Surrey Museum.

Graduation Through the Ages, on view to April 2, looks at the significance of graduating from high school, university, nursing school and more.

The exhibit includes community memories, photos and clothing with songs, traditions, and treasured keepsakes like school annuals signed by every member of the graduating class.

(Check out that grad photo from Lord Tweedsmuir High from 1956 – those were the days, Cunningham.)
