Career Life Connections (Planning 12) / Grad Transitions

The aim of Career Life Connections is to support students in acquiring attributes in the areas of intellectual, social, and career development. Guidance will be provided to assist students in the continued development of their Graduation requirements through their Grade 12 year and prepare them for their Post-Secondary choices. The Graduation Transition requirements will be supported in Career Life Connections.  The format of Career Life Connections will be both large group grade assemblies and required smaller group seminars.


Grade 12 – Grad Conference – October 9, 2019

This year we are kicking off the Career Life Connections course with a full day mandatory Grad Conference on October 9, 2019.  Students will be grouped by homeroom and attend a keynote speaker and four workshops throughout the day.  Registration will begin at 8:00 am in the cafeteria.  Students will pick up their registration package and head to the Large Gym for the keynote. Following the keynote students will rotate through a series of seminars on resume building, interview skills, financial literacy, and post-secondary planning. They will also review their diploma verification report for accuracy. This mandatory conference includes attending scheduled seminars during Flex Time.


*NEW*     Grade 12 Students are encouraged to sign into your Microsoft Teams, Career Life Connections Team for the latest information.
