ASK ANYTHING ABOUT COLLEGE!

The ‘Intro to College in Schools’ groups are now finished, but, Jasmine Mailley-Lapointe from Edinburgh College will be back in school next Tuesday 28 May Period 6 to answer any questions you may have about College or to support you with your application. She says she is happy to open this session up to anyone who has any questions or queries about their College application or any aspect of attending College, not just those who have attended any of the Intro to College in Schools courses.  She may not be able to answer all of the questions but is happy to take them away and make sure she gets them answered by someone else at the college who can and will then report back any answers to you.  If you would like to attend during period 6 next week, give your name to Ms McLennan or your guidance teacher, so we can arrange for you to be out of class at that time.  Jasmine and I will be in Room 42 (Miss Astor’s room) that afternoon.
