Graduation Transition Interviews
As a formal part of all students grade 12 graduation requirement, all of our grade 12's were involved in exit interviews which allowed to students to both reflect and share thoughts and ideas about their learning and growth over the past five years of high school. A special thanks to all the staff who volunteered their time to make this happen. Saying that, the staff feel honoured to be a part of this opportunity to hear the amazing things our students have done. Though we sometimes feel we know our students, events like this remind us how much we do not know. Many staff commented in amazement how accomplished our grade 12's are both here at school and outside in the community.
