One of the goals of the guidance program is that every grade 8 student and family will be equipped with the knowledge and information to make an informed and confident decision for choosing an appropriate secondary school program. This is a process that requires a partnership between the student, parents/guardians, teachers, guidance counsellor and our secondary school representatives. This partnership will help ensure that our students will have every opportunity for success as they transition to secondary school. This process will help students become more independent learners. They will acquire the basic habits and skills they will need for lifelong learning and for success both at school and in other areas of their lives.
