Memorial’s Leadership Education and Preparation (LEAP) program

Memorial’s Leadership Education and Preparation (LEAP) program is a two-day event that invites selected level II and III students from across Newfoundland and Labrador to experience life at Memorial. High school students get a head start on what to expect when they begin post-secondary. Students experience life at Memorial first-hand through attending classes of their choice that reflect personal interests, getting familiar with campus, and being immersed in Memorial’s culture.

Queen Elizabeth has been instructed to pick two level II students and two level III students from our school to attend this program (cost is $90.00 that the student is responsible for paying).  If you have applied or are planning to apply to Memorial University and would like to be a part of this program, please see Mrs. Watton for an application.  Completed applications are due to Mrs. Watton on May 17th.  A decision will be made before Memorial’s June 1st deadline.

See the following website for more details:

Prom Seating

On Monday, April 18th we will be meeting with level three students to discuss and distribute information regarding a seating plan for the prom. Due to table sizes, the number of people at a table must not exceed 9. Graduates will be required to complete a form listing the names of the people in their party. This is how the names will appear on the tables at the banquet. This form does not guarantee that all requests will be possible. However, every attempt will be made to satisfy these preferences. Forms are to be submitted to the office no later than Wednesday, April 20, 2016.

If you have any questions regarding the prom or seating arrangements, please feel free to contact us.

Updated Senior Prom Information

We are contacting you today to pass along a couple of important reminders from the Prom Committee.
Before Easter, forms were distributed outlining ticket costs & requesting allergy information. Also, a flyer was given out regarding prom photos.
Students received a form outlining how many tickets they request including the total cost. Full payment for prom tickets is due April 13th and can be made at the office.
Graduates are also required to complete a form notifying the school of any allergies or dietary restrictions that they or their guest may have. This information is required by the caterer. This form is also due by April 13th and can be passed in at the office.
If graduates are interested in having professional senior prom photos taken, they are reminded that appointments are required and should be booked as soon as possible by contacting Ellice Ford Photography at 769-3426.
In the coming weeks we will be arranging a seating plan so it is important that graduates consider who they would like to sit at a table with during the banquet. In the near future we will be asking graduates to complete a seating request form.
If you have any questions regarding Senior Prom, feel free to contact Allison Starkes or Ashley Coombs.
