Grade 7 Day is a day for the incoming grade 8 students to come to the school and positively get connected.
It is an opportunity to begin to explore the school community and meet some of the adults and senior students who will look to make the high school experience positive and rich. Options around year-long electives will be highlighted. Links to these programs are here:https://secondary.sd42.ca/gss/grade-7-info
