  • Upgrade 30 classroom desktop computers

  Important information for grade 8 families:

As a reminder, please note that any application to a secondary school is considered to be a pre-registration and acceptance is dependent upon successful completion of the grade 8 program. Recommendations reflect a profile of the student’s academic achievements to date.  Keep encouraging your child to work diligently.  Be involved in this process.  Discuss options and future plans with your son/daughter.  Let them know you are there to help them with these most important decisions.
