Community Focus Group Meetings -
Low Enrolment Secondary Schools
Beginning in January 2015, we will be holding a series of focus group meetings with secondary students, parents, teachers and principals from our smaller secondary schools and their respective elementary feeder schools.
These focus group consultations will be exploring the variety of methods that these small schools are already actively using to support programming for students. The groups also will consider how these schools can be further supported in the future.

The game has improved students’ confidence, abilities and test results in math, and earned rave reviews from the children. You can sign up for a free parent account at www.prodigygame.com

When people think about the skilled trades, several immediately spring to mind – electrician, plumber, welder, carpenter, for example. But opportunities in the skilled trades are much more extensive: from hairstylist to cook, painter to landscaper, automotive service technician to crane operator – and so many more.
