MSA pupils on tour of Canadian colleges
A group of pupils from Mount Saint Agnes Academy are on a tour of Canadian universities that specialise in their further education interests.
The ten day tour will take in Halifax, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Ontario.
Pupils will visit 21 campuses to help them to make decisions on their further education.
Sue Moench, the school principal, said: “The university and college tour provides a great opportunity for our students to experience university life as well as investigate the wide variety of career options available to them.
“A great learning takes place as they visit postsecondary institutes they wish to attend and also learn about a country they could be living in for the next two to four years.”
MSA pupils graduate with a diploma from the Alberta provincial curriculum which is well-regarded overseas and designed for entrance to Canadian universities.
Ms Moench added: “Most of our graduates choose to go to university in Canada. Last year's graduating class saw about 15 of our students attending schools in Canada — choosing universities such as St Francis Xavier University, Acadia University, Dalhousie University, University of Western Ontario, Brescia University, Sheridan College, Niagara College and more.
“On the tour, students will learn about university and college academics and entrance expectations.”
