Sheridan hosts HDSB postsecondary exploration event
Sheridan’s Trafalgar Road Campus hosted 4,800 high school students from the Halton District School Board (HDSB) this week for the inaugural in-person HDSB Postsecondary Exploration Event.
Over three days, from October 24-26, Grade 12 and 12+ students from Burlington, Oakville, Milton, Georgetown and Acton secondary schools had the opportunity to engage with institutions and organizations representing all postsecondary pathways (apprenticeship, college, community, university and workplace). Over 50 organizations and institutions were represented at the event.
"We were thrilled to welcome thousands of Halton region students to our Trafalgar Road Campus this week,” said Ryan Teeter, Manager of Student Recruitment (Canadian Markets). “We’re proud to have been able to partner with the HDSB to offer this postsecondary exploration event to give high school students a unique glimpse into a variety of pathways they may choose to pursue upon graduation.”
The pathways fair also included postsecondary preparation workshops to help students feel confident and prepared to tackle their next steps after high school graduation.
“The Halton District School Board was pleased to offer an equitable access event for students and their families from Halton to learn about all the pathway options that exist beyond graduation,” said Lisa Galay, Instructional Program Leader – Secondary Student Supports and Regional Programs, HDSB. “Thanks to the strong relationship we’ve built with Sheridan over the years, we knew they would make an ideal partner for this initiative. We look forward to working on future events together.”
The event also extended into the evening on October 25 to welcome thousands more grade 11-12+ students and their families with a postsecondary fair and workshop called Preparing for Postsecondary. This workshop laid out important information about pathway options, student supports, research and exploration tips, and financial planning. This workshop was offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
