New Parking Rules at Memorial High

Effective September 3, 2015 there will be new parking areas here at Memorial High. On the shop (pool) side of the school, this area will be staff parking only. In the large parking area to the right of the school, this will be student and staff parking with administration continuing to park in front of the school. There will no longer be any requirement for traffic behind the school with entrances and exits on each side of the school.

 

The new bus loop in front of the school is for busses only. It is not to be used as a drop off point.

 

Traffic control will be onsite for the first 2 weeks in September as we adjust to the new parking configuration.

Options and Opportunities (O2)

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

 Ryan Hawboldt
