Commencement is a bittersweet time of year for everyone at Saint James School because the older students act like mentors for their younger counterparts, the school's headmaster said. “This is not a school in which the graduating class graduates like a month before exams so we can get rid of you,” said the Rev. D. Stuart Dunnan, headmaster of Saint James. “We actually need you. We need you to be here. We need you to be on campus and really to help us take care of the younger students.” But for 39 students in the Class of 2012, it was their time to say goodbye.
