Post- Secondary Education Opportunities Event

Attention Grade 11 and 12 students! Save the dates: October 21 & 22, 2021 - 9:00am to 4:00pm. The OCDSB and OCSB are hosting the second annual online post-secondary education (PSE) opportunities event for students in Grades 11 and 12: Launch 2021. This type of experience is unique in Ontario; the OCDSB and OCSB are creating a new and innovative pathway exploration opportunity for students!
What is the event?
Graduation is an important milestone in our society; however, it is not a destination, rather a launching point for students' life journey. Students need to explore options that support their chosen pathway goals. These options include: joining the workforce, engaging in or continuing an apprenticeship, going to college, travelling, enrolling in a gap year program or going to university. We want students to know that each of these is a first choice option; that their decision and their choice is important and valued. This opportunity will help them gather information about what is available, as well as hear about different learning experiences and opportunities from current students, apprentices and employees. Feel free to check out this promotional video to learn more about this event.

For any students who plan to attend this event, you must have a parent/guardian notify the school that you will be absent from your classes during these two days. Also, students are encouraged to stay home while they attend this event.
