Hello NNEC grads 2024!! I've created this website to help share with you important dates, information and deadlines about upcoming events, scholarships and bursaries. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Information on post-secondary institutions for the fall:
Are you interested in a career in medicine?
If so, you should check out a program called the Rural Outreach and Mentorship Initiative (ROMI). It's run all across Canada through the Society of Rural Physicians. The goal of the program is to pair up high school students with a current medical student, to provide them mentorship and information about careers in medicine and the whole post-secondary process. Complete the google link below if you are interested in learning more about the program -

Grad write-ups and photos for yearbook
Students are reminded to get important information to Mr. Bowman for this year's yearbook. You may not appreciate the value of a yearbook now, but trust me, you will on the night of Safe Grad when everyone else is running around getting their friends and teachers to sign their book. Yearbooks will be on sale during the upcoming parent-teacher visitation so perhaps parents could purchase one for you as a Christmas gift.
Important information for graduating students regarding their GNSPES Accounts:
Once a student has graduated their GNSPES account will remain active for 1 year. It is highly recommended that graduating students archive their GNSPES account prior to the account expiring. This should be completed after the end of this school year.
To do this the student must:
Open a web browser and go to GNSPES.ca
Click the link on the main login page called, “archive your data”
Once the link is clicked a new tab or window will open up that provides step by step instructions on how to archive
