My Graduation Plan

  1. Healthy Living
    1. This year, I am jogging to meet DPA requirements (150 mins/week of moderate to vigorous physical activity).
    2. Next year, I will do yoga and jogging to meet DPA requirements.
    3. Other than physical activity, I will also need a concrete plan for healthy eating and stress management in order to lead a healthy life after graduation.


  1. Course Credits
    1. I need 80 credits to graduate. A typical course is worth 4
      1. 48 of them must be from required courses.
      2. 28 of them must be from electives.
      3. 16 of them must be from Grade 12 courses.
    2. At the end of this year, I will have 40 credits.


  1. Community Connections
    1. I need 30 hours of work/volunteer experience. To show I completed this, I must show proof in the form of a pay stub or reference letter.
    2. I can start accumulating these hours in Grade 10.
    3. My plan to earn work/volunteer hours is through working at Tim Hortons.
    4. I will also need to complete a reflection that includes employability skills, what I did, and how I benefitted from this experience. It will be 200 typed words minimum.


  1. Career and Life
    1. In addition to updating my resume, I will also create post-secondary plans and financial plans to show that I have a plan in place after graduation.
    2. When I graduate, my current plan is to go to a university.


  1. Interview
    1. To prepare for the interview, I can look at the questions ahead of time. They are found on the GT website.
    2. My interview will be with a Riverside staff member.


  1. The 3 people at Riverside who are here to help with this process are:
    1. Counsellor (Ms. Johal)
    2. Grad Transitions Teacher (Mr. Thomson)
    3. Mrs. David


In Grade 12, I will find all the necessary documents AND submit them on the GT website.

I will complete Grad Transitions 12 whenever I have English 12. If I have it in 1st semester, I must complete everything except the interview before the sale of Winter Ball tickets. In 2nd semester, everything except the interview must be completed before the end of April.

Staying Safe at Work Reflection

Yesterday, we’ve discussed about how to stay safe at work.

Now, I know that to keep myself at work, I have the right to say no if the task given to me is dangerous or makes me uncomfortable. Also, I can take the training program if I am new. I also have the rights to know the hazards.

To keep others safe at work, I need to tell them to fix possible hazards in our work environment.
