Ticketing arrangements:

Tickets for BSSC’s 2019 Graduation ceremonies are now on sale and are available at the Capital Box Office, 50 View Street Bendigo, or by phoning The Capital on 5434 6100.
Online sales are currently unavailable due to technical difficulties. We’ll let you know when they are up and running again.

Ticket prices cover reserved seating for students and guests and a BSSC graduation gift.
• Tickets are $15 per person. Students and guests need to purchase a $15 ticket with a limit of two guest tickets per graduate ($45 per family which includes 1 student and 2 guest tickets)
• Initially we will need to limit guest tickets due to the venue capacity and number of graduates. However, families can request to be placed on a waiting list to purchase additional tickets if still available. These will be released on Thursday 10 October. Access to the additional remaining tickets will be advised based on the waitlist request order. It is unlikely that additional seats will be available next to those purchased earlier.
• To be placed on the waitlist, please register your interest when booking online, with staff at the box offices or over the phone.

Graduation Evening Arrangements:

The 2019 Graduation Ceremony will be held in the Ulumbarra theatre. Dress code is semi-formal/formal.
Ceremony 1 at 5.30pm
Students for Ceremony 1 should arrive at 4.30pm and check in at the registration tables set up in the foyer to be given their seating allocation for the ceremony (alphabetical order). The ceremony should conclude by approximately 6.45pm.
Ceremony 2 at 8.15pm
Students for Ceremony 2 should arrive at 7.15pm and check in at the registration tables set up in the foyer to be given their seating allocation for the ceremony (alphabetical order). The ceremony should conclude by approximately 9.40pm.

Gates will open 1 hour prior to each ceremony and the Ulumbarra bar and cafe will be open prior to each ceremony with refreshments available for purchase. The bar will also be open at the end of Ceremony 2 only. The decision not to include supper after each ceremony (as we did last year) is based on feedback from families to make ticket prices more affordable and to allow the opportunity to celebrate as a family with dinner either before or after the ceremony (depending on the ceremony attended).

A professional portrait photographer will be available from 4.30pm on the night for those families wishing to purchase formal graduation photographs. The photographer will be located in Strategem Studio prior to each ceremony and also in the Music room (U1) following both ceremonies.
Guests and students will need to be in ticketed seating 15 minutes prior to the commencement of each ceremony.

Prep Photos

A highlight of the Graduation Ceremony is the photo reflection screened during the evening. Photos of students from prep or their early years of school are presented along with their 2019 school photo. Please look through your early year’s school photos now and select your preferred one! Email your photo to Madolyn Claney prior to the end of term (20 September) for inclusion in the photo reflection. or bring your photo to the Student Services Centre and we will scan it and give it back to you.
