Eight free 'On Your Mark!' diploma exam tutorial sessions will be offered to Peace Wapiti Public School Division (PWPSD) students in June, starting this weekend. There is no need to register – students should simply show up ready to review and ask questions. Lunch and snacks will be provided by PWPSD.
While the comprehensive six-hour tutorials are open to students enrolled at PWPSD high schools, Superintendent Bob Stewart notes that, in the past, staff have received calls from students from other school divisions. "We never turn them away. We offer them everything we provide to our students – access to the tutorial sessions and free lunch and snacks."
"The one-day sessions provide structured time for students to focus on studying diploma course material," says Peace Wapiti Academy (PWA) Principal Wanda Gerard. "A concise overview of the curriculum is combined with opportunities for students to redefine concepts, receive clarification, complete sample questions, and be exposed to a variety of question types."
Sessions start at 9:00 a.m. on three consecutive Saturdays in June, with the exception of Science 30 on Wednesday, June 26. Social Studies 30-1 and 30-2 will be offered at PWA on Saturday, June 8. Math 30-1 and 30-2, and Chemistry 30 tutorials will be held at Grande Prairie Regional College (GPRC) on June 15. Physics 30 and Biology 30 will be hosted at GPRC on June 22.
"The rigorous review helps students feel more confident in their understanding of concepts, eases their stress, and also helps them identify areas of focus that will enhance their additional studying and review leading up to the exams," adds Principal Gerard. "As a learning community, we extend our appreciation to the PWPSD high school teachers who facilitate the sessions, and give a huge shout out to the participating students. We also thank GPRC for volunteering the use of their venue."
