Free On Your Mark! diploma exam tutorial sessions for PWSD students

June 02, 2016

Now in its eighth year, On Your Mark! diploma exam tutorial sessions will once again be offered free of charge to students of Peace Wapiti Public School Division (PWSD). The comprehensive six-hour tutorials review course content while further developing strategies to tackle question formats.

"Our goal in creating this opportunity for students is to highlight and review key information, provide time for them to do sample questions with teacher assistance, and let them experience different teachers delivering material in different ways," says Wanda Gerard, Principal at Peace Wapiti Academy.

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

On Your Mark! sessions will be offered in Social Studies 30-1 and 30-2 on Saturday, June 11; Biology 30, Chemistry 30, and Math 30-2 on Saturday, June 18; and Science 30 and Physics 30 on Saturday, June 25. There is no need to register for the sessions; PWSD students should simply show up ready to review and ask questions. Lunch and snacks will be provided by PWSD. Sessions run from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., unless otherwise indicated. Scheduling details are as follows:
