Grade 7 - 12 Exams

Our January exams are quickly approaching! See EXAM SCHEDULE for details.

A few reminders:
  • During the exam break (Monday, January 23 to Tuesday, January 31) there are no scheduled classes.  All students will write their exams in the morning and then go home to prepare for their next exam.
  • During the exam break, students are expected to arrive to school on-time, be in proper uniform, and be in their homeroom for regular morning procedures.  After announcements, students and teachers will then move to the classroom where their exam will take place.  All exams start at 9:00 a.m. and students must remain in their exam until at least 10:30 a.m.
  • Junior high exams will end at 11:00 a.m. and high school exams will end at noon (except PATs and Diplomas - their times are determined by Alberta Education).
Students may go home when they finish their exam in order to allow them sufficient time to review for their next one.  As soon as junior high students complete their exam, they may be picked-up by a parent/guardian.
Those who are not picked up immediately will proceed to the Bessborough Drama room until they are picked -p (pick-up time is 11 a.m.).  High school students may leave as soon as they finish their exam or wait for pick-up in the student lounge (their pick-up time is noon).
Questions? Please contact Mr. Forrester or Mrs. Wachtler.

Good luck to all students writing exams!
