Hapnot Collegiate will be helping grade nine students prepare for their first year at the Collegiate. Principal Steve Lytwyn says there’s a change in welcoming the new grade nine students. He explains traditionally they have had the grade nine orientation the week before school but they’re going to try something a little bit different and they’re going to have the grade nine students come in the very first day of school next Wednesday September 4th and there’ll be greeters there to meet them and they will give them a tour and go over what life will be like at Hapnot for them and then that day at lunch they’re planning a welcome back barbeque for all of their students because their grade ten, eleven and twelve students will already be in class in the morning just to have a great kick off to the new school year.
The Collegiate is open this week for students who want to come in and make changes to their timetables. Any students with questions can also drop in or call the Collegiate at 204-687-7506.
