Letter: Kudos to clever grads for graffiti in washable chalk

Carson Graham grads get a hat tip from the community

Students from Carson Graham Secondary in North Vancouver are receiving praise from the community.

Dear Editor:

I am a longtime resident of North Vancouver and former teacher and vice-principal (toughest job in the system), and have always been disturbed by the “tradition” of high school graduates tagging their schools or other public property with graffiti at graduation time.

This past weekend, I was walking the dog around Carson Graham and came across this year’s contribution. However, the Carson grads should be commended. They made their mark, but they did it in chalk. When the rain comes, it will all wash away at little or no cost to the public.

That is responsible leadership and bodes well for the future of these youth.
