Senior Sunrise: Friday 14th August: For those who are new to the school, Senior sunrise is a tradition we have at Graded. Every senior arrives at school early in the morning to see the sunrise. it's a way for seniors to remind themselves that they only have one year left of school. One of the main highlights of the event is that every senior will get his/her hoodie, which serves as a physical memento of our time at Graded. This year the sunrise will be at 6:33. Seniors are recommended to arrive at 6:20 in the student center.
