They were supposed to have their pictures taken in Polson Park, keeping up with tradition.

But with the park closed at the time due to flooding, the Class of 2020 from Fulton Secondary School got creative with the traditional photos in their finery.

One dozen (11 grads and one date) went to the dock at Kal Beach on Kalamalka Lake with rain falling and heavy grey clouds looming.

Others gathered in different parks in the area.

One Kalamalka Secondary student had a photo taken with her in her dress being greeted by a hefty bovine.

It’s been a crazy, anything-but-traditional year for all grads in 2020.

Here’s to them for making the most of a tough situation.

And, they looked great doing so.

Vernon Secondary School’s Class of 2020 will revive a tradition stopped in 1981, when they will paint Suicide Hill – the top of 30th Avenue – Wednesday, June 17, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The class will arrive in groups to obey provincial health regulations.
