Graduation Ceremonies

The school-sanctioned commencement will be on Friday June 26, 2015, at 11:00 am. There are, however, a number of other activities associated with graduation, such as the Prom (graduation dinner-dance), that are not sanctioned by the OCDSB or the school, but are organized and managed by the student Prom Committee. As the administration and staff of Lisgar Collegiate, we wish to inform you that we will not be assuming responsibility or liability for the events organized and managed by the Prom Committee, or assuming a supervisory role. Please see the letter from Ms. Agard for more information. (03/09/2015)

Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test: March 26, 2015

The Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT) is a provincial test of literacy skills (reading and writing) acquired across all subject areas by the end of grade 9 ( Eligible students will write the OSSLT on Thursday March 26, 2015. These students will have attended an information session and had two practice sessions prior to the March Break. During these sessions, students review test components, learn tips and strategies, and complete practice exercises. Students are encouraged to review additional practice materials on the EQAO website. Since the OSSLT is a high school graduation requirement, all eligible students must ensure they are present and on-time the morning of the test. It is recommended that test-writers have a solid breakfast and are well-rested. Please ensure that students do not have any appointments scheduled during this time as there is no make-up option. If absent, students will be deemed “unsuccessful” on this year’s test. All unsuccessful students will have an opportunity to write the test the following year or to take the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Course (OLC4O) at Summer or Night School. Please contact Ashley Shaw, Vice-Principal, or Christine Rankin, Head of English and Languages, should you have any questions or concerns about the OSSLT. (03/03/2015)
