WORK EXPERIENCE:  If you have a part time job where you work 5 or more hours per week you could easily log enough hours before the end of the year to complete Work Experience 12A.  If you work upwards of 10 hour per week, you could easily complete Work Experience 12B as well. This is a great chance to earn 4 or 8 grade twelve credits toward graduation.  Even though these are grade 12 courses, you can enrol if you are in grade 9, 10, 11, or 12! Anyone wishing to take advantage of this should see Mr. Rhodes in the Career Centre to learn how to get started.  Please show up with a resume and cover letter to initiate and expedite the process.
