Grad Transitions – ePortfolio 12

Course Overview

Graduation Transitions is a required course that is to be taken in a student’s graduation year. This course provides the student an opportunity to reflect on their knowledge and abilities and plan for life after graduation by collecting evidence of their achievements in the following required areas:

  • Personal Health:
    Daily physical activity and a commitment to fitness and physical and emotional well-being are key to healthy living. In this component of Graduation Transitions, students develop the knowledge, attitudes, and habits needed to be healthy individuals by maintaining a personal health plan and participating in at least 80 hours of moderate to vigorous physical activity in addition to PE10.
  • Community Connections:
    Life after graduation includes the world of work and community responsibilities. As part of Graduation Transitions, students gain employability skills through participation in at least 30 hours of work experience and/or community service.
  • Career and Life:
    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 and requires the completion of a transition plan, culminating in a final Grade 12 presentation. • Faith Foundations
