Hello NNEC grade 12 students, we're trying something a little different this year. 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.

Google Calendar & Important Dates

Wednesday, Nov. 30th - There will be a representative here from Mount Saint Vincent University at lunch hour in Room 1040. Please sign up in Student Services if you are interested in attending.


Please note the following dates and locations for Open House visits hosted by many universities/colleges (you are asked to register for the open house online at each university):

Volunteer Opportunities

We are looking for grade 12 males who would be willing to give up a lunch hour a week to become a mentor to grade 9 students here at school through the Big Brothers program . This volunteer experience would be very beneficial on a resume/reference letter particularly to someone interested in applying for bursaries/scholarships. If interest, please speak to Mrs. Lochead.

If you would like to volunteer to be a peer tutor, we are looking for students who would be interested in helping younger students with math and science. Check in with Mrs. Lochead if you are willing to give up some of your lunch hour for this good cause. Another opportunity to enhance your resume.

Survey

I had the idea of asking former grads to come back and speak to the grade 12 students about university and how they adjusted to post-secondary life. If you think this would be useful, please fill out the form below:

Grad write ups and photos for yearbook

Students are reminded to get important information to Mr. Ebbett 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.

Grade Write-ups - email your write of 100 words max to northnovayearbook@gmail.com

Grade photos - make sure you call Priham's Studio by Dec.9th to let them know which proof you would like in the yearbook (752-4282)

Grad Interviews - grads who want a short interview/message tagged to their name in the yearbook must sign up with Mr. Ebbett ASAP. Deadline for being interviewed is Dec. 16th.

Baby photos - submit your baby photo (and include your name) either to Mr. Ebbett or submit to northnovayearbook@gmail.com
