This year, the Clarington Public Library wants to combine fun with education at the 10th Annual Clarington Winter WonderLearn festival. This free event with such a wide variety of activities is a great option for Durham College students with young kids of their own.
Lisa Dyche, Marketing Librarian at the Clarington Public Library, said they try to have new activities every year for returning families. This year they have more outdoor activities planned, including horse-drawn wagon rides.

Sitting down for a number of hours, listening to a long list of names being called and having to wear a non-flattering gown. That’s right, it’s your graduation ceremony.
Although the idea of attending your graduation may seem boring I believe it will actually be beneficial. Students will have the opportunity to not only experience the whole ceremony with their friends, teachers and family but also experience it just for themselves.

It’s the student’s time to shine. The Convocation ceremony represents all of the student’s hard work and their overall success throughout their college experience.
Part of the experience of attending your graduation is getting the chance to get ready for it. Convocation is a formal event and students will have to dress appropriately. Personally, I will be shopping for a new dress and possibly new shoes. I’ll make sure my hair is done nicely and I’ll be getting a pedicure/manicure. It’s the joy of getting ready for an event. We all did it for high school; why not do it again for post secondary schooling?
