What is Safe Grad?

  • Safe Grad is a PARENT-RUN event to ensure graduates have a safe, accident-free and incident-free graduation celebration.
  • Safe Grad is under the control of the Manitoba School Boards' Association, Manitoba Public Insurance, and Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries.
  • As such, our Safe Grad Parent Committee must abide by the rules set down by Safe Grad Manitoba.  The two primary rules for Safe Grad are:
    • No grad and no guest will drive to or from the event.
    • No one under the age of 18 will consume alcohol.

How Can I Help?

  • PARENT VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!
