Class Schedules

Morning classes start this Monday and will run every day for the next five weeks. For the afternoon classes rotation, students should receive an email from their afternoon teachers, by the end of today, advising which group (A or B) they will be in. Group ‘A’ starts afternoon classes on Monday 14th, and Group ‘B’ starts afternoon classes on Tuesday 15th.  Note:  some classes may have small enrolment, and may be offered five days per week.

Reminder that the grade 11 and 12 students will have their photos taken on Monday morning Sept 14. Purchasing photos is optional, but all students in all grades need to have school photos taken for school identification purposes (grade 12’s too - even if you are having grad photos taken later).
