Take Our Kids to Work Day

Take Our Kids to Work Day is an annual career exploration event, held on November 2 of this year, where Grade 9 students across Canada are asked to share a day in the life of a working professional.

Our Grade 9’s students will spend the day at the workplace of a parent, relative, friend or volunteer host, witnessing first-hand the world of work, prompting early career planning, and enabling students to make informed decisions about their future goals and endeavours.

This event also gives parents the opportunity to discuss career prospects with their children and allows the working professionals the opportunity to share knowledge, experience and advice around education, career choices and relevant skills required in today’s workplace.

Grade 9 parents/guardians, please take this opportunity to talk to your children about their potential career thoughts and see if there is a place that would be of the most interest for them to attend. There will be more information shared as we get closer to this date.

Book of the Week

Looking for some tales to scare those with nerves of steel? Look no further than Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. There is a story here for everyone—skeletons with torn and tangled flesh who roam the earth, a ghost who takes revenge on her murderer, and a haunted house where every night a bloody head falls down the chimney. Gammell's creepy drawings perfectly capture the mood of more than two dozen scary stories; there’s even a movie to go with these spooky tales! Check out your copy today!

School Fundraising- Great Christmas gifts!

Our school has signed up to participate in Purdys Chocolates Christmas campaign! This year, we are hoping to put the proceeds towards overall school aesthetics and culture-building activities. You can order anytime between now and November 26th - all orders will be ready for pickup by December 12th.

Cyber Security Awareness Month

Cyber Security Awareness Month

October is Cyber Security Awareness Month in Canada, which is an important time to reflect, as individuals and as an organization, on how we can protect ourselves and our students online. This year’s theme is Fight Phishing: Ruin a Cyber Criminal’s Day.

Phishing is a cyber criminal’s attempt to get sensitive information by pretending to be a legitimate sender like a bank or a government organization. If you have an email address or a phone number, use social media, or browse the internet, chances are you’ve received a phishing message. In fact, phishing is one of the biggest cyber threats Canadians are facing. Learn more

Cyber security is a shared responsibility. To help educate students on phishing and cyber security, check out the resources below:
