January 18: CVDCS hosts in person Information Night for Grade 8 students

Grade 8 students and their parents/guardians are invited to an in-person Information Night at Chelmsford Valley District Composite School on Wednesday, January 18, 2023 at 6 pm. All students are invited to participate regardless of which elementary school they currently attend.

“Chelmsford Valley District Composite School has many opportunities in arts, athletics and academics,” says Principal Danielle Williamson. “Our community school also offers innovative programs that combine in-class learning with hands-on experience.”

Students can explore a Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM) in one of three sectors: Arts and Culture – Community Based Culture, Construction – Carpentry Techniques, and Health and Wellness – Exercise Physiology and Health. SHSMs are Ministry approved programs where students focus their studies on a specific economic sector while meeting the requirements of the Ontario Secondary School Diploma.

Students can also enrol in two and four-credit programs through Co-op, Dual Credits and the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (OYAP). In these programs, students experience the exciting world of work, which opens doors for the future.

Chelmsford Valley District Composite School has been revitalized to create a Kindergarten to Grade 12 school offering JK to Grade 8 (English and French Immersion) and Grade 9 to 12 (English Program). Renovations include a bright new entrance, updated libraries and classrooms, and a secondary gym.

“We pride ourselves on being a dynamic community school,” says Principal Williamson. “We look forward to sharing our pride during our Information Night and invite everyone to join us in person.”
