Secondary V Orientation Trip
The Secondary V Orientation Trips allow students who are currently enrolled in Cree School Board schools to visit Post-Secondary Institutions during their final year of high school.
By having the chance to visit various schools, students are able to make a more informed decision about where they will have the best chance for success. Student Services covers travel and accommodation costs for the students and their supervisors.
To be eligible for the Secondary V Orientation Trip, students must:
- be registered in the Youth sector of the CSB
- not have previously taken part in an Orientation Trip
- be eligible to graduate at the end of the academic year (including the next summer school session)
- have good attendance
- attend all preparatory meetings for the Orientation Trip
- participate in related fund-raising activities.
