Course Information Mini-Fair – January 28


Ever wonder what is covered in Geology 11 or Engineering & Design 11 or English Lit 12 or Drumline 10?  On Wednesday, January 28, from 1:00 - 1:45 during Tutorial Wednesday, students are invited to visit the Mini-Fair in our new gym.  A number of our staff will be available to answer student questions in preparation for Course Planning that starts in February. 

WGSS offers over 350 course options to students so we felt it would be helpful for students to have the opportunity to discuss their options with representatives from each department before the selection process begins.  Students are dismissed early on that day for Parent-Teacher Interviews so this provides a great opportunity for students currently in grades 8 to 11 to make good, informed choices about their courses for next year.
