A week long day camp for students entering grade 9.
Students and parents will have an opportunity to find answers thier questions about what the high school experience might look like. Be pro-active in building confidence and calm the nerves about this transition to secondary school. Its a big deal! Be ready!
Through many discussions and activities students will get specific information about the high school they will be attending. They will learn to navigate school websites with ease. We will create a way of expressing the best way we learn to new teachers and support staff. Students will learn about what the first days of high school will be like and how semesters and credit accumulation function.
Parents will have a chance to ask questions and get some answers to questions that they might have.
We also have a lot of fun! Confidence, empowement and wellness are key topics in our activities. We also discuss relationship building (real and virtual), positive risk taking, goal setting and mindfulness.
