We are asking every student to complete our online TAG Career Survey. This potentially helps us to guide them with course selections and career paths in their future. Many have already completed it (477) but we have almost 1200 students here so lots still need to do it. Please encourage your student to complete the survey online so we don’t have to get them to fill out a paper copy.
The survey link can be found on our website in our “quick links” section on the left side: https://spectrum.sd61.bc.ca/ or click here for the direct survey link

SheBiz is a free, day long interactive conference aimed at sharing exciting career opportunities in the STEM subjects with high school girls.
"Stats Canada has reported that female high school students earn better grades in the STEM subjects than their male counterparts, but then when we look ahead they are underrepresented in these programs in university and later the workforce. As an organization we are hoping SheBiz can help bridge this gap by providing young girls with information on careers in business, science, technology and math before they make the big decisions effecting their future education and career."
