Lively District Secondary School hosts in-person Open House on November 30th

Students in Grades 6 and 8 and their parents/guardians are invited to the Lively District Secondary School in-person Open House on Wednesday, November 30, 2022 at 6 pm.

“Lively District Secondary School provides programming for students from Grades 7 to 12,” says Principal Leslie Mantle. “Everyone is welcome to join us to explore the dynamic learning opportunities offered to our students.”

Students and families can learn about life at Lively with a tour of the school and its exceptional facilities. Students can also speak with staff and members of the School Council about programs and opportunities to get involved.

Lively District Secondary School offers the Innovative Integrated Technology (InIT) program. InIT combines a variety of core subjects with innovative technology classes and hands-on learning. In partnership with the business and industry sectors, students enrolled in this specialized program participate in relevant and meaningful activities such as job shadowing and field trips, and have an opportunity to earn industry recognized certifications that prepare them to become competitive in a global market. The InIT program encourages problem solving through the design process, the integration of digital technology, and the use of industry standard software and hardware.

Lively District Secondary School also offers four Specialist High Skills Majors (SHSMs): Environment – Sustainable Agriculture; Information and Communications Technology – Software and Digital Media; Mining – Technology; and Sports – Sports Industry. These Ministry of Education approved programs allow students to focus their learning on specific sectors while meeting the requirements of the Ontario Secondary School Diploma. SHSMs help students transition from secondary school to apprenticeship training, college, university or the workplace.

In addition, students can enrol in Co-operative Education, the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (OYAP) and Dual Credits through Cambrian College.
