"Take our Kids to Work" day is on Wednesday, November 2nd this year.  Now in its 22nd year, this day provides Grade 9 students from across Canada the  opportunity to experience the world of work.  Most often, parents invite their Grade 9 student to join them at work for the day, but there are other options available as well.  Students can go to work with a relative, family friend, neighbour or local business.  All students in Grade 9 will be bringing home an information pamphlet and permission form in the upcoming weeks.  For more information on this program, visit www.thelearningpartnership.ca/TOKW or contact Mrs. Ward-Cain at the school.

 NBCC has implemented a First Qualified, First Accepted admissions process, to increase the accessibility to our over 90 programs, located at six campuses around New Brunswick.  
·         Apply now for the next available program offering!
·         Qualified applicants who apply first will be admitted first (no more ranking).
·         Grade 11 students can apply early and have their application conditionally processed based upon completion of Grade 12 AND meeting the program’s admission requirements.
·         New applications will be processed on a continuous basis for the next available program using the date and time stamped approach.
·         Applicants, who receive an offer of acceptance, less than four weeks prior to the start of the program, will have a one-time option to defer their application. This means applicants keep their original time stamp and their application is carried forward to the next academic   year for the same program/location.
·         For high-demand programs that have wait lists, qualified applicants who are waitlisted will move up the list as seats become available. 
Since April 1, 2016, we have received 567 applications from grade 11 students. We will be communicating next steps with them at the beginning of October.
