Link Crew

Advisers: Ms. Swierniak

Meetings: as needed throughout the year

Open to Grade 11 and 12 students. Members will receive leadership training which allows them to work with our Grade 9s as they adjust to life at high school. Starting in May, students may apply to become leaders and they will receive the training during the second last week in August. On our Registration Day in late August, Link Leaders will facilitate a number of activities with our Grade 9s, including some icebreaker games and a school tour. During the school year, leaders continue to work with their Grade 9 crews, helping them to prepare for exams and offering support and guidance as needed. Becoming a Link Leader is a great way for students to make a difference in the school community and learn some valuable transferable skills applicable to many work environments.
