Options and Opportunities (O2)
O2 is a new program being offered at Memorial High.
Options and Opportunities is ideally suited for students who do not flourish in traditional classroom settings and are looking for a more hands on, career oriented approach to education. Our class size is small – no more than 20 – and our goal is to help students start out on a self-guided career path which they can pursue through the rest of their high school experience and give their post-secondary education some direction.
O2 can connect students to a career, help them to select the proper courses to follow that career path, and assist them in gaining work experience and certifications in the process. Students will learn about workplace safety, resume and portfolio building, job/ career shadowing, different professions from working professionals, as well as field trips and hands on instruction.
When students complete O2 in 2017, they will have a Nova Scotia Community College seat in the program of their choice held for them.
O2 is recognized by most major industries including hospitality, tourism, all trades and many more. If you are interested, and would like more information, please contact
The Parent Portal is available to parents who wish to check on the attendance and marks of their student(s). It is available at https://siscbvrsb.ednet.ns.ca/public/home.html . This can be set up by contacting Charmaine Cox through her email (email@example.com)
Please consider becoming a Host Famly for an International Student.
Please be advised that Memorial High School is not affiliated with S-Trips or Breakaway Tours.
