What’s happening in Rainbow Schools?

Lockerby Composite School hosts Virtual Open House on December 2nd

Grade 8 students and their parents/guardians are invited to visit Lockerby Composite School’s Virtual Open House website launch on Wednesday, December 2, 2020 at 7 pm. The link will be available at lockerby.rainbowschools.ca. All students are invited to visit the Open House website regardless of which elementary school they currently attend.

“We welcome the opportunity to showcase the exceptional programs and prospects available to students at Lockerby Composite School,” says Principal Craig Runciman. “Our virtual presentation will be a combination of video and conversations with staff.” Visitors to the website can sign up to speak one-to-one with administration or staff about programming or any other questions they may have.

Participants may explore programs, including the Science Technology Education Program (STEP). Busing to Rainbow District School Board’s specialized secondary school programs is offered to students within Greater Sudbury. STEP enjoys a rich tradition at Lockerby Composite School, and is recognized as one of the most innovative secondary school programs in Ontario. With a focus on math, science and technology, the program is for students contemplating a career in medicine, science, health care, business, computer science, design or engineering.

STEP students are actively engaged in their learning by keeping pace with the latest trends in science and technology through involvement in initiatives such as anywhere, anytime laptop learning, the Advanced Placement (AP) Capstone program and AP courses, the provincially recognized Specialist High Skills Major in mining, health and wellness, and information and communication technology, as well as courses in architecture, interior design, medical biology and medical technology.
