Transportation/Bussing Information

Parents are reminded that they will need their child’s Ontario Education Number (OEN) to access the secure parent portal.

Exam and Culminating Review

To better support authentic feedback, STA will be modifying the way we offer students the opportunity to see their exams and culminating assessments this June. Students will now have two specific opportunities over the course of the day to find their teacher and to review their final exam/culminating assessments. Using the schedule below, students will report to the rooms assigned by subject where students will check in by period, meet their teacher, and review their final assessments. During a student’s scheduled “lunch time”, students are asked to ensure that lockers have been cleaned out, that locks have been returned to the main office, and that books returned to the library and text books returned to the main office. Additionally, please note, staff will be unavailable for student review from 11:00AM – 12:25PM as teachers participate in department discussions and reviews.

Period Time
Period 1 9:00 to 9:20
Period 2 9:25 – 9:45
Period 3 9:50 – 10:10
Period 4 10:15 – 10:35
Period 5 10:40 – 11:00

Student Senate Applications 2017-2018

HCDSB Student Senate is composed of 8 representatives from each secondary school and was designed to establish a student vision for the Halton Catholic District School Board. Its members, student senators, provide a link between the Student Trustees and the remainder of the student population in the board. The primary role of the Student Senate is to bring a more diverse “Catholic student voice” to the school board.

Student Senators act as an advisory body to the Student Trustees in order to provide a wider perspective on issues that face students in our Catholic schools and develop and organize initiatives that will illustrate their leadership abilities. Examples of past initiatives include the “See the Problem, Be the Solution” and student lead leadership conferences on a variety of current interests.

Students in interested in applying to be on Student Senate in the must apply electronically using the following link: Student Senate Application

All on-line applications need to be completed Thursday May 4th 2017

Please note: Students applying to Student Senate for the 2017-2018 school year must commit to being available June 6, 2017 to participate in an all-day leadership workshop.
