 ANNUAL K – 12 STUDENT TRANSFER PROCESS

The annual K-12 Student Transfer Process facilitates requests from students in Kindergarten to Grade 12 to transfer to schools outside of a designated catchment. To apply for a transfer request you must provide all required documentation and complete a form at the student’s current school in the week of February 15-23, 2018.

Students who are not in catchment and looking to follow their school pathway at the time of transition from elementary to middle and middle to secondary (Grades 5 and 8), will now have to apply for a transfer request. Non-catchment students no longer automatically follow their current school pathway.

For more information on in catchment school pathways and transitions, please visit School Pathways & Transitions.

In the event, a school receives more transfer requests by grade than the number of seats it can accommodate, the waitlist order of transfer requests will be determined by lottery in accordance with our student enrolment priorities. Therefore, there is no advantage of submitting your transfer request first. Please submit your request at your convenience during the communicated dates. 

Important dates associated with the transfer process are available here.

 

FEBRUARY WORD OF THE MONTH – PERSEVERANCE

Perseverance is the ability and self-control that pushes you to work through challenges. Having perseverance means that when you are facing a challenge, you use your mind, your body and your emotions to overcome it. It’s that drive that helps you keep working even when you want to quit. If you know there is hard work to be done you persevere by doing your best, sticking with it and staying focused. Perseverance is the strength to do what you know is the right thing even when it is hard for your mind, body or emotions.

Perseverance is continuing to work toward a goal even if there is a delay in getting it, or a difficulty in achieving it. Sometimes we work hard and don’t meet our goals, but knowing we did the best we could do gives us a sense of pride and self-confidence.

Having Perseverance is really important in maintaining positive relationships because friends, coworkers, spouses all have disagreements sometimes. Perseverance helps you work through issues and maintain relationships, even when it feels really uncomfortable.
