Grad Transitions

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

  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
