Home and Garden Sale - Saturday, May 12
Mark your calendars for our annual garden sale. See the attached poster for more details.
WORK EXPERIENCE - MAY 7 - 18
Our term two work experience dates are May 7 - 17.
During these two weeks, all grade 11 and 12 students are encouraged to find a placement where they can volunteer their work.
We are advising parents in advance so that you can help your son or daughter develop a list of businesses in your neighbourhood that they might want to work at.
The pathway groups will meet in April to discuss this in more depth with students and to distribute the required forms.
In order to participate in this program, students and parents must complete and return a Work Education Agreement form.
We believe that this opportunity to get on the job experience is very important for our students.
Grade 10 students may do a one week work experience and grade 9 students may do a 2-3 day work experience during this two seek period.
If you have any questions about this program, please call the school and speak to Mr. Fish, Head of Technology.
