Grade 8 Transition Info - Welcome Future Vikings


Welcome future Vikings and families!  While COVID-19 has meant that we cannot welcome you into our building to walk you through your transition to Barrie North, we have not forgotten about you!  Here are some important resources we have been providing (and more to come) to assist with the Grade 8 transition to secondary school. 

Grade 8 Transition to BNC Virtual Power Point Presentation – This is a copy of the presentation that Guidance Counsellors delivered to all grade 8 students in December.  This power point is a basic introduction to Life at Barrie North.  We have posted it here for parents / guardians who wish to see it or for students to revisit when choosing their courses.

Parent / Guardian Pathway Presentation:  This Power Point presentation has similar information to the presentation above but is designed with parents / guardians in mind to explain the various pathways and course choices for students entering Grade 9.  It also outlines the secondary school requirements for achieving a diploma. 

Gifted Resources – This presentation outlines BNC's amazing Gifted Program. 

New French Immersion Program Pathway Chart – This chart will explain the course pathways for the new French Immersion Program at Barrie North.

Virtual Open House Video – January 14th.  This video will help prepare students for course selection.  This presentation will be followed by our Parent / Guardian Information Meeting the same night - January 14th at 7-8 pm.  Zoom link here:

Parents, if you were unable to attend the Zoom Q and A and January 14, you can ask your questions using the following link:

COURSE SELECTION PACKAGE – In January, we will be sending out a package through the mail to our Learn@Home students that will include a copy of detailed course descriptions, a paper copy of the course selection sheet, and instruction on how to input your courses online.  We will also be posting all of the information on our website.  For students learning in schools, packages will be dropped off at your schools prior to our Grade 8 Virtual Open House and will include the above information.  Course Selection begins January 14th and must be completed by January 29th.
