Description

Graduation Transitions is intended to prepare students for a successful transition to life after secondary school. In order to meet this goal, Graduation Transitions encourages students to:

 

        take ownership of their own health and learning

        examine and demonstrate connections between their learning and their future

        create a plan for their growth and development as skilled, healthy, knowledgeable, participating citizens

        exhibit attributes of a BC graduate

 

Students are responsible for planning and preparing their education, career, and life goals through Graduation Transitions.

 

Course Topics/Modules

Graduation Transitions is an opportunity for students to reflect on their knowledge and abilities and plan for life after graduation by collecting evidence of their achievements in the following required areas:

 

Personal Health

Daily physical activity and a commitment to fitness and physical and emotional well-being are key to healthy living.† In this component of Graduation Transitions, students develop the knowledge, attitudes, and habits needed to be healthy individuals by maintaining a personal health plan and participating in at least 150 minutes per week of moderate to vigorous physical activity.

 

Community Connections

Life after graduation includes the world of work and community responsibilities. As part of Graduation Transitions, students gain employability skills through participation in at least 30 hours of work experience and/or community service.

 

Career and Life

Graduation Transitions requires students to explore personal and career goals during their secondary school years and create a plan for life after graduation. Transition planning is an ongoing process throughout the graduation program years and requires the completion of a transition plan, culminating in a final Grade 12 presentation.
