Students currently in Gr. 8 and attending one of our feeder schools (St. Michael's, St. Joseph's, Our Lady of Fatima or St. Gregory's) will spend an entire year planning for their transition to high school.
In the fall our Gr. 9 Guidance Counsellor starts their initial visits, which will continue over the course of the school year. The counsellor will visit the schools approximately 4-5 times to:
meet the students and introduce themselves
talk about high school and what to expect
bring past students from the school back so current students can hear their experiences
organize a school wide shadow day (held at NCC)
discuss course selections and return for inputting of courses
meet with classroom teachers, school administration and support staff in transition meetings to ensure each student's needs will be met once they arrive at high school
introduce students to peer mentors and uniforms for the following year
All forms and registration information will be provided to students.
Parents/Guardians of students not attending one of our non-feeder school are encouraged to contact the Guidance Department to make arrangements for their son/daughter to attend a shadow day where by they can experience life at NCC as a Gr. 9 student and also get their questions asked.
The school also hosts Gr. 8 Parent/Guardian information night each February and all are invited.
If a students is not arriving in September as a Gr. 9, Parents/Guardians are asked to contact the Guidance Office for information on how to register their son/daughter.
Transportation - required on if your son/daughter will need bus transportation (supplied to feeder school students). Please see the Transportation Link under Parents/Community for eligibility.
