On Your Mark! PWSD students benefit from free diploma exam tutorial sessions

January 05, 2016

Peace Wapiti Public School Division's (PWSD's) free diploma exam tutorial sessions are back by popular demand.

The comprehensive six-hour weekend tutorials, known throughout the Division as 'On Your Mark!' sessions, will be open to all PWSD students. Students will be given the opportunity to review course content and further develop strategies to tackle question formats.

"Our goals in creating this opportunity for students are to highlight and review key information, provide time for them to do sample questions with teacher assistance, and allow them to have different teachers deliver material in different ways," says Wanda Gerard, Principal at Peace Wapiti Academy.

'On Your Mark!' sessions will run from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. during three Saturdays in January – the 9th, 16th and 23rd. Social Studies 30-1 and 30-2 tutorials will be hosted at Peace Wapiti Academy. Biology 30, Chemistry 30, and Math 30-1 and 30-2 sessions will be held at Grande Prairie Regional College (GPRC). There is no need to register for the tutorial sessions; PWSD students should simply show up ready to review and ask questions.

"The rigorous review helps students feel more confident in their understanding of some concepts, and it also identifies concepts for students to focus on during their additional studying and review. As a learning community, we would like to extend our appreciation to the teachers from high schools throughout our Division who offer these sessions on Saturdays, and give a huge shout out to the students who participate. We would also like to thank GPRC for volunteering the use of their venue," adds Principal Gerard.

Lunch and snacks will be generously provided by Peace Wapiti Public School Division. Scheduling details are as follows:
