Nov 30 – Scholarship, Bursary and Post-Secondary Night

Now is time to be thinking about the scholarship and bursary process.  In addition, the post secondary application process is well underway.  While we as a school often target and remind the Grade 12’s of the opportunities and potential benefits, it is never too early to start planning.  Grade 12’s should already be exploring their future options, but Grades 10 and 11 are also good times to plan and build your portfolio package.  For more information and details, look to attend the post secondary session at 6:30 on Thursday November 30th.  At this time, Mr. Grill will go through the scholarship and post-secondary process in greater depth.  This informative session will be held in the library.  For more details, please contact Mr. Grill in Counselling.
