Grade 8 Transition

All future Vikings are invited to review and explore the Slide Deck for important Transition Information as you get ready for your Grade 9 year at Barrie North. Check out all the great possibilities and see what High School life has to offer.  We look forward to seeing you!

High School Transition Activities

For the first time in your school career you get to choose some of the courses you take. It's also the time to explore what you want to do for a job when you're older.

Sometimes students feel nervous about starting high school—that's completely normal. Any time we go through a big change in our life, it's natural to have some nerves. It's important to know that you're not alone. You and hundreds of other students are starting grade 9 for the first time. Some students will come from other elementary schools, so it's a chance to meet new people.

High school also offers even more sports and activities than ​elementary school. There is a lot to choose from, and getting involved in activities is one of the best ways to meet people and make friends who have the same interests as you do.
