PLRS offering Science 30
Over the last few weeks a number of students have asked about registering for Science 30
in Semester 2. While it is always possible to take Science 30 through individual study
within our Learning Commons we would also be willing to offer Science 30 as a more
traditional, teacher lead course. This course would be offered Day 1 and Day 2 in Block 5
(2:03 - 3:18) during the second semester.
Science 30 is a diploma course with a Provincial Exam. Students who successfully
complete this course can generate credits towards; High School Diploma, Rutherford
Scholarship, and some university or college applications for admission. We recommend
any student interested in taking Science 30 to talk with Mrs. Galloway, our Academic and
Career Counselor, to ensure that Science 30 can be used towards the post-secondary
programs they are interested in applying for.
Students interested in taking Science 30 need to have successfully completed one of;
Science 20, Biology 20, Chemistry 20, or Physics 20. Credit for Science 30 can be earned
even is students have completed other 30-level sciences. Students interested in registering
for a teacher directed Science 30, offered from February 2019 - June 2019 need to complete
the form below and return it to the office no later than Thursday January 24th.
Please pick form up at the office!
