 Options and Opportunities (O2)

Options and Opportunities (O2) 

O2 is a new program being offered at Memorial Composite 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 Coast 89.7 Student Radio Show
The Coast 89.7 FM is starting a student based radio program expected to air weekly. The show would focus on issues, news, sports, and other ongoing activities that affect the lives of students directly outside and inside of schools. This would be great for practicing speech, writing and communication skills. It would also be a great way for you to publish and promote your school and activities.
