  • You are a trustworthy, respectful, well behaved students. Any teacher or administrator can remove a student based on section sheets or pupil path anecdotals.
  • You arrive on time for school and you have an acceptable record of attendance. Excessive unexcused lateness and/or absences will lead to a removal from acitivities
  • You take pride in your education and don't have any "N"s or "U"s on your report cards. Two "N"s or one "U" is an automatic removal from activities

These are our Grade 8 Expectations. Not only do we follow these for senior activities participation but your teachers also follow this for regular class trips. Remember, participating in senior activities is a privilege and reward for hardworking and deserving students. it is NOT a right.
