Summer school theme: celebrate, experience, plan
The theme of this year’s summer school program at Near North District School Board (NNDSB) is Celebrate prior learning, Experience new learning and Plan Forward for future learning.
NNDSB is offering Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) camp for the first time ever this year. The camp will run in the mornings at West Ferris Secondary School for students in Grades 7-10. Camp will run from 9 a.m. to noon July 4-22, and students will get hands-on experience with STEM education while learning foundational literacy and numeracy skills. Students will interact with drones, coding, robotics with an appearance from First Team1305 and more. Principal recommendation is required to participate.
West Ferris Secondary School is also the site of Summer of the Arts, a Grade 9 and 10 integrated arts (ALC10/20) and Grade 11 and 12 exploring and creating in the arts (AEA30/40) courses being offered. Students can build on their artistic talents while earning a secondary school credit. These courses run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. from July 4-29.
E-learning courses are being offered for all students. Courses include French Immersion civics and careers, science, English, math, history, cooperative education, physics, geography and more.
