Community Involvement Information - Graduation Requirement

The community involvement requirement for graduation has reverted back to pre-COVID-19 rules.
Students graduating in the 2023-24 school year and beyond, will once again be required to complete 40 hours of community involvement activities.
  • During the past three years, students could earn hours during the time allotted for the instructional program in a school day, and through duties normally performed in the home. This included helping an elderly relative with an errand or a sibling with homework. Additionally, students could count a maximum of 10 hours from paid employment for students aged 14 years and older. These flexible measures will no longer continue for the 2023-24 school year. If students completed hours using these flexible measures prior to September 1, 2023, those hours can be accepted.
If you have hours working for family or 10 hours from paid work completed during July and August, please complete the forms below and bring them to guidance.
  • Remember, hours beyond the required 40 will not be recorded. You should keep those sheets in a folder to use for scholarship and resume purposes.
  • Hours must be completed by mid June of the students' graduating year to allow for approval by the principal. Volunteer hours that are not approved will not count for graduation requirements.
  • If you are unsure, check with the principal to ensure your hours will be approved before completing the hours.
Please hand in your completed community involvement sheet in Student Services. If you have questions regarding an upcoming opportunity, please see your guidance counsellor.
