The Future Looks Grand for Students and Families as Grade 9 Information Nights Begin Across Grand Erie
Starting secondary school is an exciting time, and a crucial step on the path to future success. For families and students set to begin this next chapter in 2020-21, Grand Erie secondary schools are hosting Future Grade 9 Student and Parent information nights starting this month and continuing into January.
“Preparedness is the key to success, so our goal is to ensure students and parents are supported throughout this transition process,” said Denise Martins, Superintendent of Education for Secondary Programing as well as the Haldimand and Norfolk Secondary Schools. “That starts with having the information they need about the programs and opportunities that await in our secondary schools.”
The information nights begin with specialized programs including Brantford Collegiate Institute and Vocational School’s Laurier Program, Pauline Johnson Collegiate and Vocational School’s athletic-focused SOAR Program, as well as French Immersion programs at Simcoe Composite School, North Park Collegiate and Vocational School and Brantford Collegiate and Vocational School.
“Grand Erie schools work to foster enabling environments that are inclusive and welcoming for all students and families,” said Lisa Munro, Superintendent of Education for Brantford and Brant County schools. “We recognize that the transition to secondary school is a time of uncertainty and immense opportunity, and look forward to partnering with families and students as they make these important decisions.”

Future Grade 9 Student and Parent Information Nights
City of Brantford and Brant County:
Port Dover Health & Fitness Centre & Port Dover Chiropractic Centre hosted the third annual community fundraiser "Blood Sweat & Cheers Port Dover" on Saturday, June 17, 2017! This 5 km obstacle fun run resulted in all proceeds donated to Lakewood Elementary and St. Cecilia's for outdoor recreational equipment and refurbishments to the Todd Eaton Memorial track. Lakewood Elementary School staff, parents and students are truly grateful for this support. Thank YOU!
Our focus will be track training for sprints and long distance.
Students should have proper footwear - running shoes not board shoes. A light jacket or sweater is often needed and track pants, capris or soccer style shorts.
The Running Club maintains a supportive, non-competitive atmosphere which allows all levels of runners to develop their running.
