As 2019-2020 comes to a close, we experienced a year like we have never seen before. Things ended abruptly as COVID-19 forced us to take immediate action and close down the campus in mid-March. Flights were booked and belongings were packed as quickly as possible as the boys were shuttled to airports in Ottawa and Montreal to head home. That means no proper Graduation and no end of the year Gala. A proper goodbye was not possible.
Today, we celebrated the Graduating Class of 2020 via Zoom. There were smiles, laughter and tears, but most importantly we were all together to give our Grads as close to a perfect send off as we could. Whether it’s for 2 years or 4 years, these Grads have come from all corners of the globe to attend CIHA and we are so proud to celebrate their accomplishment with them. We want to congratulate these 13 young men who embodied and embraced our School. Hockey. Life. motto throughout their time here. We could not be more proud of this special group for what they have accomplished over the last several years.
