Applications for SHAD 2019 are officially open and due by November 19.
A quick refresher on SHAD:
High potential students spend July living at a university while engaging in hands-on learning in STEAM & Entrepreneurship.
SHAD looks for grade 10, 11 or 12 students who are: involved in their communities, creative & keen learners
A range of bursaries are available, ensuring the program is accessible to students with demonstrated financial need. Last year, we awarded over one million dollars in bursaries and scholarships. The cost of the program should not be the reason a student does not apply!  See Mrs. Giesbrecht in the Career Centre if you have any questions.

Grade 11 and 12’s are welcome to attend the university presentations in the Career Centre over the next couple of months.  Check the link below frequently for dates and times as they are subject to change.  https://docs.google.com/document/d/1q9G6IGT3LQ8SZhoi3560vMWAZqXAb_rmJGIwmJIb2io/edit?ts=5b96d1ec
