The transition from elementary to secondary school is a time of change for students and parents/guardians. It is an exciting time and one that will have a lasting impression. Like most situations, the more you know about the transition process and what you will need to do, the easier and more enjoyable it will be.
There is a lot to learn and do in the coming months. Here is a booklet that will guide you through the transition process and help you know what to expect. If you have any questions along the way, please ask your teacher or principal.
At Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board, we are here to ensure the transition is smooth and seamless. Elementary and secondary school principals, vice-principals and teachers are available to answer any questions you may have. You will also have plenty of opportunities to become more informed about programs, courses, extra-curricular activities and how to prepare for Grade 9.
