Teaching and learning activities will focus on skills that are imperative to success at high school – knowing how to study, use the computer, plan for assignments, and ask for help.

It is the beginning of a whole new chapter in your lives; meeting new people, experiencing a range of different subjects and sports, all in preparation for adult life.
