Grad Photos 2018

Grad Photos will taken in the DWP School Cafeteria on Friday, November 16, 2018 from 3:00 pm to 9:00 pm, Saturday and Sunday, November 17 and 18, 2018 from 9:30 am to 4:00 pm.

Please note, Grad Group/Friendship photos will be booked at a different day.  Group/Friendship will be booked on January 25.  More information will be posted.

All Grads need to take a photo for the yearbook and grad composite.  Grad composite/yearbook photos are free; however, there is a sitting fee for portraits.

Goto the following website to book your appointment.

Note, you are only allowed to book one appointment.  If you need to change your appointment, your original appointment will need to be cancelled first before you can re-book.

The full photo sitting fee option is $45 and must be paid at the time your photos are taken. We take cash, debit, checks and credit cards. This will allow you to have both the formal grad portraits as well as the casual photo sitting. Your 16 proofs and ordering instructions will arrive about one week after all photos are completed.

The yearbook only option is free but you still must sign up to have your formal portrait taken. This will ensure your photo will be included in the yearbook and all other special grad related events where your portrait will need to be used.

Please be advised that the on line sign up schedule will close at 11:45 November 15th.  Grads must see the photo staff in the cafeteria once the photos have started to make any further changes.

If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us directly. or 604-380-3388
