Principal’s Tea

On Tuesday Dec 6th at 2:30 we will be having our Principal’s Tea to celebrate students with excellent achievement in the first term. Invited students and their families are welcome!

Updated course selection sheets!

Registration for second semester is open! We’ve changed some of the course offerings, so if you are a current student, your timetable may need to be changed. Please see Karin in the SOLE office.

We’re very excited about the new options, which include Writer’s Craft, American History (online), Current Aboriginal Issues in Canada, World Cultures: The Global Potluck (online), and Media Studies: Game Design. Don’t wait until courses are filled!

Know Your Rights

Broghan Masters and Jasmine Dunn from Parkdale Community Legal Services presented a fascinating and useful lunch-and-learn on  rights in the workplace. Students learned about the Employment Standards Act, discrimination, termination, and asserting your rights. Thanks to Broghan and Jasmine for empowering the next generation of young workers!
