Toronto Catholic District School Board

Grade 9 Jump Start


On the last Thursday in August, the incoming grade nine students are invited to a half-day orientation at the school. The day runs from 8:30 am until 12:30 pm, and is hosted by the student council and part of the student leadership team. The purpose of the morning is to assist students with the "nuts and bolts" of the first week in high school. 

Among the topics covered that day will be:

  • How to read the timetable (students will recieve their printed timetable)
  • How to find their way around the school, and in particular, how to locate their classes
  • How to loocate their locker
  • How to open their combination lock (we have a contest for this!)
  • How to use the cafeteria service
  • and much, much more.

In addition, the day will end with a pizza lunch.

We strongly encourage ALL incoming students to attend this friendly, and informative morning.

To see the date for the Jump Start for the current academic year, please check the academic calendar.
