Our grade 8 classes have been invited to attend a Mentorship Day at Loyalist College on May 23rd. This is part of the School College Work Initiative (SCWI) program that is in my portfolio. Students will attend Loyalist with their teachers from 9:30am – 1:30pm. The first portion of the morning would be The Beanstalk Project http://www.thebeanstalkproject.org/ followed by a resource session where students will move to different college program tables set up around the gym. Groups of students will be assigned college mentors to be a resource to them while at Loyalist. At the tables they will have the opportunity to explore different career options, college programs and ask questions. There will be some hands on activities at the tables as well, relating to each program. Busing and lunch will be provided for all participants. There is no cost to the school. What a great opportunity for our Grade 8s!
