An unexpected downpour dampened the start of the Kwalikum Secondary 2020 graduation ceremonies on Wednesday morning but it eventually stopped, much to the delight of teachers and parents who allowed the modified rites to proceed.

An outdoor stage was set up on the school parking lot where graduates in groups of 10 were individually driven in by parents. Each were presented with their diplomas before climbing up to stage where they were introduced, along with a brief note on their future plans.
