The "Get Ready!" Program is designed to provide a successful transition into secondary school by providing students with an opportunity to review key concepts in literacy and numeracy, as well as introduce effective learning strategies and organizational skills. The program also consists of an orientation to the secondary school including an overview of secondary programs, schedules, school layout and practices. As students will be participating from a number of feeder schools, this initiative will also allow our incoming Grade 9's to establish connections with their new peer group and members of the secondary faculty.
This 20 hour program will be held on August 26, 27 and 28 from 8:15am to 1:45pm as well as August 29 from 8:15am to 11:45am. Students are to bring a lunch each day.
Please print and complete the form, including the student’s OEN number and submit it to Our Lady of Mount Carmel’s main office no later than Friday May 17th.
Please note that the OEN number is not your child’s student number. The OEN number can be found on your child’s report card. Students who are not attending a publicly funded school should contact Our Lady of Mount Carmel for additional information.
