Every student is required to complete 40 hours of community involvement in order to receive their diploma. Students can start accumulating community involvement hours in the summer before they enter Grade 9.
The purpose is to encourage students to develop an understanding of the various roles they can play in their community and to help them develop a greater sense of belonging. Students must make sure they are volunteering at a "not for profit" organization and are not doing work they should trditionally be paid for. Student are encouraged to contact theiur Guidance Counsellor for clarification before they start volunteering.
Some students may wish to complete more than 40 hours, which is great! Communty Involvement Sheets can be printed off below or picked up from Guidance on the wall by the door.
