Keys to Success in Secondary School

Education is a partnership. Everyone works together making your transition from Elementary to Secondary school successful.


Tips for Students:

  • Relax and enjoy the experience of secondary school.
  • Get involved... join a club or team.
  • Keep organized.
  • Do your homework every night.
  • Ask questions.
  • Strive for balance in your life.
  • Attend every class... miss a day, miss a lot.
  • Stay healthy... get enough sleep and eat right.
  • Be active. Set aside time for daily physical activity.
  • Make time for reflection and prayer. Feed your soul.

Tips for Parents/Guardians

Remember, education is a partnership between you and the school:

  • Ask about school every day. What are you studying in Geography? What did you do at lunch time?
  • Ask to see notebooks and the school planner.
  • Call the school with any concerns or questions. Your son/daughter's Guidance Counsellor will be very helpful!
  • Attend all school functions and talk to us! Teachers work best when they know the "story behind the desk".
  • Encourage your son/daughter to take advantage of all opportunities for extra help.
  • Join the School Council.​​​
