Grade 8 Students Register for High School

This past month the grade 8 students and parents had an opportunity to hear about the various high school programs at a meeting held at Central Collegiate March 3rd. They received information about the academic program opportunities, athletic programs, and school events. Over the next few days the students are asked to register at the high school of their choice and later this month they will be revisiting their prospective schools. It is an exciting time for them all.
