Student Opportunities

Dear Parents/Guardians

The Nipissing-Parry Sound Catholic District School Board is pleased to offer an after school Grade 9 Learning Strategies course to students currently enrolled in Grade 8. Students successfully completing the course will receive one credit towards their Secondary School Graduation Diploma.

An important goal of this course is to increase students’ confidence, motivation and ability to learn and is ideal for students currently experiencing academic challenges. It explores learning strategies and helps students become better, more independent learners while increasing their personal management skills, both in school and in other contexts. Students will learn how to develop and apply a range of strategies to improve their learning, particularly their communication and planning skills.

The course will begin on Thursday, February 13, 2020 and end on Thursday, May 21, 2020. Classes will be held at St. Joseph-Scollard Hall Catholic Secondary School on Tuesday and Thursday evenings (5:00pm - 7:00pm) as well as three Saturday sessions (9:30am - 12:00pm).

To register your child, visit and complete the on-line registration form here.

Offering this course requires a minimum enrollment. The Board reserves the right to cancel any course that does not meet this requirement. Transportation to and from the course will be the responsibility of the parent or guardian. For more information about the course, please contact me at 705-472-1201, extension 31234.
