Midway Arena was awash with sparkle and sentiment on Saturday as BCSS graduates gathered to say farewell to their high school lives and share their future plans with an emotionally charged audience. More than 200 well wishers watched with delight as 31 excited students accepted their diplomas from principal Bo Macfarlane and superintendent Kevin Argue, with many also gracing the stage to receive the numerous bursaries and scholarships awarded the talented class of 2016.
