Summer school resumes
Many Island students are back in school to improve their grades or English language skills.
More than 170 high school students from across the Island have registered for morning summer school at Colonel Gray Senior High School. The summer learning environment, which started July 4 and continues to Aug. 14, offers students smaller class sizes and only one course to focus on.
“This is value-added programming that gives students extra opportunity to graduate sooner or get courses they need to get into post-secondary programs,” said Education Minister Doug Currie.
“Summer school is also an excellent opportunity for new immigrant students to improve their English language skills and keep up in the classroom later.”
Summer courses offered this year include:
