As some students graduate from secondary schools all over Vancouver Island, West Shore students are having some fun with the end of this chapter of their lives.
Grad2019Pranks is listed as the seller on usedvictoria.com in a sale ad for Royal Bay Secondary School at a price of $2,019.
“This colourful, state of the art school has been a great and well used home over the past four years. But gratefully we are done with it,” the ad reads.
The students say a lack of space being “resolved by nice men in yellow hats with steel toed boots, increased amount of vapists, young adolescents ‘ruling’ the school and simply being fed up with looking at the same faces for the last four years” as reasons for putting the school up for sale.
School District 62 credited the pranksters on Twitter for a creative joke.

The ad highlights the 141,000 square-foot building comes fully equipped with 28 class rooms, 17 bathrooms and two gyms, along with a “slowly moving elevator” requiring a key during use.
“What started off as a $36.6 Million dollar high school is now turning into a $61.8 Million dollar building; but seeing the last four years to be nothing but slow wifi and long drives to Tim Hortons we are simply asking for $2019.”
The prank ends by asking for “serious inquiries only as we have a seven day limit.”
