Student Initiated ProjectsFebruary 5, 2021
Student-initiated Projects (SIPs) are curricula that have been developed by school divisions/schools to meet local needs and interests.
Community Service (Volunteer) Credit
Students can make a contribution by volunteering for worthwhile causes or organizations. The civic skills, knowledge, and attitudes obtained from such community service activity can increase a student's self esteem and maturity, and provide more awareness of the needs of others in the community. A credit may be available to a credit who participates in such activity in the senior years for graduation purposes.
Students who are interested in this credit should speak to their Guidance Counsellor or Career Advisor prior to beginning.

Cultural Exploration Credit
Students can gain valuable educational experience by enhancing their knowledge of their own cultural origins or a cultural group that interests them through interaction with community members such as elders and members of cultural organiziations. The skills, knowledge and attitudes obtained from such activities can increase a student's self-esteem and maturity, strengthen cultural idenity, and/or provide greater intercultural understanding and an appreciation of cultural diversity. A credit may be available to a student who participates in such activity in the senior years for graduation purposes.
Students interested in pursuing this credit can see their Guidance Counsellor or Ms. Sinclair for more information.
