Guidance

Guidance is an area where students can receive assistance with educational planning, career goals, personal counselling, or referrals to outside agencies.  Guidance counsellors are teachers with additional expertise in the area of Guidance and Career Education and are trained to help students make informed decisions about their future.

Address Change
If you have moved or are planning a move, please provide the Guidance secretary with proof of your new address. Acceptable documents include a current utility bill or new purchase/lease agreement. Transportation requires up to 5 school days to process address change requests.
Appointment Requests 

Appointment Requests may be made through the "Request an Appointment" link at the bottom of this tab, or students may come to the Guidance Office to book an appointment with a Counsellor.

Guidance appointments take place during school hours and students may choose to meet with any of our Guidance Counsellors if their appointment is for personal reasons. Otherwise, they will be scheduled with a Counsellor based on the purpose of their appointment as each Counsellor comes with a specific area of expertise (i.e. scholarships, skilled trades, student exchange programs, etc.).

A green slip will be given to the student by their Homeroom Teacher the morning of their appointment with the appointment time.  This process helps prevent forgotten appointments. If the student is absent or missed their appointment, an appointment will be rescheduled for them.

Bulletin Board Programs & Events

Lakeridge Health High School Summer Student Volunteer program - application deadline June 11, 2024

This pilot program will include approximately 50 students supporting the current needs at the Oshawa and Ajax Pickering Hospitals, as well as Lakeridge Gardens Long Term Care Home.  Please note: All students must be 15 years or older at the time of their application. All required documentation and mandatory health screening must be completed no later than June 11, 2024 so there is time to complete orientation, placement, and training. Students will not be able to move forward with the program unless all requirements have been completed.  Students will be asked to commit to two shifts a week during July and August; shifts are traditionally three to four hours long.  As this is an eight-week program, students with plans to be away for more than one week (or two shifts) may not be eligible.  Students will be placed in pre-determined non-clinical roles that will provide them with an engaging and supported experience at a Lakeridge Health facility. 

Please apply as soon as possible via the link below.

Commencement 2024

Commencement 2024 - June 27, 2024 1 pm at Scugog Arena

Grade 12 students who will have completed all diploma requirements will be invited to our Commencement ceremonies. 
Note:  Students who will not graduate by the end of the school year, should book an appointment with a Guidance Counsellor to develop a
plan. If the plan allows the student to have successfully completed their diploma requirements by August 31, 2024, they will be invited to the Commencement ceremonies in June.  They will be able to pick up their diploma in September once their diploma requirements have been met. Students who return to PPHS in the Fall of 2024 to complete diploma requirements will be invited to the Commencement ceremonies in the following year (June 2025).

Courses taken outside of PPHS:
If you are taking a course with a private institution outside of PPHS (ie) Blythe, OVS, VHS, etc. please see Ms. A. Schilling in Guidance for
information and directions.  The final mark for these courses needs to be sent directly to the PPHS’ Guidance Department by June 7th, 2024 at the latest.

Community Involvement Hours:
Community Involvement Hours should be completed and submitted by June 7th, 2024 at the latest.

 

Online Learning Graduation Requirement

If you have not completed the "Online Learning Graduation Requirement" and have not filled in the "Online Learning Graduation Requirement Opt-Out" form, you will not graduate.  Please pick up the opt-out form in Guidance or download it from the Guidance webpage of our PPHS website.

Commencement Awards, Bursaries and Scholarships
Students have been invited to a Commencement Awards, Bursaries and Scholarships 2024 Google Classroom.  Students will find valuable information and have an opportunity to apply for specific PPHS Commencement awards, bursaries and scholarships.  We will also be using this platform for nominating and voting for the 2024 Valedictorian.  

Community Involvement Hours

Students must complete a minimum of 40 hours of community involvement activities as part of the diploma requirements. The purpose of this requirement is to encourage students to develop an awareness and understanding of civic responsibility and of the role they can play and the contributions they can make in supporting and strengthening their communities. Students will plan and select their community involvement activities in consultation with their parents and as part of the IPP (Individual Pathways Plan).

Although this diploma requirement applies to students in Grade 9 to 12, students in Grade 8 are able to start accumulating community involvement hours in the summer before they enter Grade 9. Students are encouraged to complete a minimum of 10 hours per year.

If students are unsure of whether the activity meets the requirements for eligibility, please see a Guidance Counsellor for clarification.

Students may check the bulletin board titled "Community Involvement Hours" outside of the Guidance Office or view the binder in the Guidance Office for further details.

These community involvement activities must be completed outside of scheduled class time, not be part of a credit course, be unpaid for a total minimum of 40 hours and must be completed by the end of Grade 12

Students may wish to consider virtual volunteering, such as connecting with seniors, organizing virtual fundraising events and facilitating discussions with newcomer youth. Outdoor volunteer opportunities could include, for example, picking up litter.  Volunteer opportunities, such as connecting young people to be technology mentors to seniors, can be found through agencies such as Volunteer Durham and Youth Opportunities Ontario.

Students who would like to volunteer in their community may register online at justserve.org to find virtual and in-person options.

Diplomas

Diplomas are given to students at their graduation ceremony. Students who do not attend the graduation ceremony may pick up their diploma from the school; diplomas are not mailed to students. The Ministry of Education only issues one diploma per student so it is important to keep your diploma safe as it cannot be replaced if lost or damaged.

Online Learning Graduation Requirement Opt-Out Form

Beginning with the cohort of students who entered Grade 9 in the 2020-2021 school year, all students must earn a minimum of two online learning credits as part of the graduation requirements for an Ontario Secondary School Diploma unless they have been opted-out or exempted. 

Families wishing to opt-out of the mandatory online courses required for graduation must complete the “Opt-Out Form.

 
Online Learning Graduation Requirement 

The Ontario Ministry of Education has introduced a new graduation requirement for secondary students to complete two online learning credits as part of the 30 credits required for the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD).  It applies to students who entered Grade 9 on or after September 1, 2020.  Although students working towards an Ontario Secondary School Certificate (OSSC) or Certificate of Accomplishment are not required to complete this new graduation requirement they may take eLearning courses.

The graduation requirement is intended to support students in developing familiarity and comfort with learning and working in a fully online environment, as well as developing digital literacy and other important transferable skills that they will need for success after secondary school, including in post-secondary education and the workplace.

Definition of "Online Learning" for this Graduation Requirement

Online learning credits that count towards the requirement are earned through courses that are delivered using an asynchronous model.  Students complete their online coursework with the support of a certified Ontario educator with whom they communicate, and who provides instruction, ongoing feedback, assessment, evaluation, and reporting as needed, including implementing any accommodations and/or modifications identified in the student’s Individual Education Plan.

Exception: Remote Learning Credit Earned in 2020-2021

The Ministry recognizes the extraordinary circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic.  As a result, up to one secondary school credit that was completed by students who were in Grade 9 during the province-wide school closures (from April 2021 to June 2021) may be counted towards the graduation requirement.

Opting-Out of the eLearning Graduation Requirement

A parent/guardian or student (18 years of age or older or 16 or 17 years of age and withdrawn from parental control) may withdraw from the online eLearning graduation requirement.  No explanation or reason is needed to opt-out.  

There is no deadline to opt-out and it may occur at any time during the student’s secondary school program.  Students who opt-out may still take eLearning courses.  Students and families are permitted to opt back into the online learning graduation requirement should their decision change.

To opt-out of the online eLearning graduation requirement, complete the following form and submit it to the Guidance Department.

Opt-Out Form

If you have questions, please contact the Guidance Department.

Student Success

Port Perry High School is currently using several Learning to 18 strategies to meet individual student’s needs.

  1. Expanded Co-op: Port Perry High School has been working diligently to broaden opportunities for experiential learning and give more students a chance to start working and "test-drive" career options. Port Perry H.S. offers two-credit, and four-credit co-op options.
  2. Grade 8 to 9 Transition Program: Interventions have been established to help students make a smooth transition from elementary to secondary school. A team meeting takes place in the spring of each year to identify students in need of extra support. Activities are planned such as the Grade 8 Information Night, the Grade 8 Road Show to our community schools, and the Grade 9 Orientation at the start of the school year. 
  3. Student Success Team: Port Perry High School has a Student Success Team that is comprised of the administration, guidance and special education heads, and student success teachers. Together they will identify and support struggling students, provide more options for learning, monitor student progress, and develop procedures for all student success initiatives. As well, each Student Success Team will work with school staff, students, parents, and the community to ensure more students earn the credits necessary to graduate. 
  4. Dual Credit Program: With the dual credit program, students can earn a number of credits by participating in apprenticeship training and/or post secondary courses that count towards both or either their high school diploma and their post secondary diploma, degree, or apprenticeship certification. 
  5. Specialist High Skills Major: The SHSM allows students to focus on a career path that matches their individual skills and interests. Each major has a bundle of 6 to 12 courses in a selected field. Students who choose a major learn on the job with employers and at skills training centers, as well as in school. They can earn valuable industry certifications; including First Aid/CPR, WHMIS, and Basic Health and Safety qualifications. Students who complete a major can be confident that they leave high school prepared with the knowledge, skills, and industry-recognized qualifications desired by employers, and post-secondary education and training institutions.

For more information, please contact the Guidance office.
