GRADE 8 PARENT NIGHT-2022

Thank you to all our parents and students who made it online for our virtual grade 8 transition night event. For those of you who were not able to make it to our virtual event, please view the recording below.  
As always, if you have any questions please don't hesitate to reach out to our student success team, guidance counsellors, and administrative team. 



On January 25th at 6:30 pm, GBCS administrators and the Student Support Team will be hosting a teams meeting regarding grade nine orientation for grade eight parents/guardians. In the virtual meeting, we will be addressing course selection and de-streaming.  We would like to offer the opportunity to ask questions ahead of time. They will be compiled and shared at the meeting. Please feel free to send them to 
danielle_carson@bwdsb.on.ca by Friday, January 21st. For questions specific to your child we ask that you hold off, we will provide you with contact information at the meeting for our student support team. Please check your emails for the virtual meeting link.

As we get closer to the first day of school, we wanted to share with you, a video tour created back in June. More information will come soon regarding the first day of school and what to expect. We look forward to having all of our students back in the building. Enjoy the rest of these beautiful summer days!

Your GBCS Admin Team



We are already looking forward to next year and welcoming a whole new group of students to our new state-of-art new building!

For families of all new, incoming grade 9 students, there will be an information session on January 20, 2021 at 6:30pm.  Please contact Danielle Carson (VP) for a link to the event.  This link was also shared to families through the School Council's of our public feeder schools and sent home by the grade 8 teachers at each feeder school. A recording of the event is available below.

Over the next couple of months, incoming Grade 9 students will also have an opportunity to work with their current grade 8 teachers to fill out Option Cards.  In the meantime, we encourage students to check out our Course Calendar to learn more about all the courses, clubs and teams at GBCS.  

We are a close-knit school where students have the benefit of a strong, supportive community while enjoying all of the extracurricular opportunities found in a larger school. Come make us part of your story.
