Canadian Student Service Grant

Grade 12s: Are you going to college/university in September 2020? If YES and if you HAVE NOT received CERB money (Canadian Emergency Response Benefit), please consider the "Canadian Student Service Grant" opportunity this summer. For every 100 hours you volunteer over the summer, the Canadian government will pay $1000 to the post secondary institution you will be attending in the fall (to a maximum of 500 hours, in increments of 100 hours). You must register your participation in the program before doing any volunteer hours.

If you are interested in this program, please contact Michele Soltys by email: michele.soltys@rdpsd.ab.ca or by phone: 403-342-6655 ext 1238.

Additional details can be found here.

It is important for students to be responsible for their own academic records and course information. All students are required to sign up for an account in "My Pass."  Click here for instructions on how to do this.

Student Profile Sheet for References

Do you need a reference letter? Scholarships often require references. Start the process by completing a student profile sheet to outline your accomplishments over the past three years.  Providing the completed profile sheet to your referees will make writing you a strong reference letter easier.  

Volunteer Opportunities

Looking for volunteer opportunities in your community? Check out Volunteer Central, a database of volunteer postings by area. Volunteering looks great on a resume and is an important consideration for scholarships! Volunteering is a great way to give back to your community!

Career Appointments

Students are encouraged to book a career appointment with Ms. Halter in Grade 12 to explore career options, to look at education or training requirements needed to obtain employment in a particular field, to learn about post-secondary programs and gain information on scholarships. Students can book an appointment using the paper schedule in the Learning Commons until the new online booking option is available. Please note appointments will become available to Grade 10 and 11 students in the second semester!
