Get Ready! for Secondary School Summer Program
NOTICE: Get Ready! will be different this year.
We are developing a "Getting Ready for High School" Program designed to run for a few days during the first weeks in September 2020, provided students are back physically in the buildings. It will run as an after-school program.
Get Ready! for Secondary School is a summer program designed to welcome our Grade 9 students, and support them as they transition from Grade 8 to 9. This program is unique to the Dufferin-Peel CDSB and blends literacy and numeracy focused instruction with secondary school readiness activities to help welcome and prepare students for their secondary school experience. Get Ready! allows students entering Grade 9 to get to know their secondary school and their teachers and peers, before beginning classes in September.
- Direct support for literacy, numeracy, and learning strategies in late August.
- Students also participate in orientation exercises, faith activities, and education/career/life pathway planning.
- Students feel prepared for their secondary school experience, are able to explore their new school building, and make connections to caring staff in their new school.
- Student participants report feeling more comfortable and more confident about beginning secondary school, and achieve a higher credit accumulation rate in Grade 9.
