Ms. Van Duynhoven is the Graduation Transitions Teacher.
What is Graduation Transitions?
The Graduation Transitions process begins in Planning 10, and continues through Grades 11 & 12. It is a Graduation Requirement
The purpose of this program is to prepare students for a successful transition to life after secondary school, by encouraging students to:
- Take ownership of their own health and learning
- Examine and demonstrate connections between their learning and their future
- Create a plan for their growth and development as skilled, healthy, knowledgeable, participating citizens
- Exhibit attributes of the BC Graduate
The program has 3 main parts
- Personal Health Grade 10-12 (Average 150minutes per week)
- Daily Physical Activity (DPA) and a commitment to fitness, personal life management, and physical and emotional well-being are key to health living. In this component of Graduation Transitions, students participate in activities that help them develop the knowledge, attitudes, and habits needed to be healthy individuals
- Community Connections
- Life after graduation includes the world of work and community responsibilities. As part of Graduation Transitions, students gain employability skills through meaningful work experience. They also make a positive contribution to the community
- Transition Planning
- Graduation Transitions requires students to explore personal and career goals during their secondary school years, and create a plan for life after graduation. Transition planning is an ongoing process throughout the graduation program years, culminating in a final Grade 12 Student Led Interview
