COURSE CHANGES for Semester 2


School Counsellors are currently reviewing schedules and making course adjustments based on graduation requirements.  Any students who would like to request a course change, will be able to make appointments on the following days: 


Grade 12’s- Friday, Feb 3rd

Grade 11’s – Monday, Feb 6th

Grade 10’s- Tuesday, Feb 7th.


These course change requests are VERY LIMITED and not guaranteed.  Students should not be leaving classes to go to guidance unless they have an appointment.  Students also need to follow their scheduled classes until the change is updated in PS.   If students were not successful in a course, they should make an appointment with their school counsellor.




Current Grade 9 Students: There will be a grade 9 parent/guardian info session regarding course selection on Tuesday, Feb 7th at 6pm in the SHS cafeteria. School Counsellors will be meeting with students in the coming weeks to provide information and paperwork on how to select courses for the next school year.  Further information can be found  by clicking the Course Selection tab at the top of this page.



Current Grade 10 and 11 Students:  Course selection will be open for current grade 10 and 11 students on March 1st.  Counsellors will provide info sessions at lunch and offer individual meetings with students throughout that month.  More information can be found here.  


Students can pop into Student Services and listen to announcements for more information.
