After the stapler caper …
2017 North Dundas District High School Valedictorian Mallory Hutchinson addresses her fellow graduates (below) at the school’s June 28 graduation ceremony (most of the speech appears in the video). Her remarks followed the distribution of diplomas and the revelation of a multi-year prank pulled by the Class of ’17 on their teachers. As the individual graduates ascended the steps to collect their scrolls, many handed over a previously missing stapler to the surprised staff members and officials on stage. It seems that a multitude of official Upper Canada District School staplers disappeared these last four years at NDDHS in preparation for graduation day!
