Wallaceburg District Secondary School is holding their annual Tartan Tour at Mitchell’s Bay on Thursday Sept. 12.
Nancy Schinkelshoek, a teacher at the school, said the event is the school’s Grade 9 orientation program “designed to ease the transition into high school.
“Grade 9’s get to know each other, some amazing student leaders and staff. All leaders apply for the position and understand what an honour it is to welcome our Grade 9’s to the Tartan family,” she said.
The staff and leaders involved come from various extra curricular areas of interest around the school to encourage Grade 9’s to get involved while at WDSS.
“The day is designed so that all grade 9’s make a caring connection with someone right away,” Schinkelshoek said.
“This combination of engagement and friendship is the recipe to keep them coming to school and see success. Tartan Tour is a great example of students helping students succeed.”
