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

January 11, 2017

Free diploma exam tutorial sessions will be offered to students of Peace Wapiti Public School Division (PWSD) starting this weekend.

The comprehensive six-hour tutorials, known throughout the Division as 'On Your Mark!' sessions, will be open to students enroled at PWSD high schools. The sessions provide an opportunity to review course content while further developing 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. on Saturday and Sunday, January 14-15; Saturday, January 21; and Friday, January 27. Science 30 and Social Studies 30-1/30-2 tutorials will be hosted at Peace Wapiti Academy. Biology 30, Chemistry 30, and Math 30-1/30-2 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. Lunch and snacks will be provided by PWSD.

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