PARTICIPANT FEEDBACK

Pretending to be spies and use math to do spy-ish things [was my favourite part of U School] because it gave me a whole new perspective on math.

 Grade 5 Student Norwood School

We get to see a side of the students that we sometimes don’t see in the classroom.  I enjoy seeing the students excited.  

Grade 4/5 Teacher St Maria Goretti School

I think this program is amazing; it has been really good for my son.  It has allowed him to make a real connection with a post-secondary institution, it is not so foreign to him now, he can visualize going there.  

Parent of a Grade 9 Student Duffield School

The most important thing to tell them is that this place gets you thinking about your future!  And what you are gonna do with your life when you are older.  

Grade 6 Student Prince Charles School

Telling the students more about my personal experience (going to a school close to theirs) and telling them they could achieve what I achieved.  I think these sessions need to have a technical aspect, but also provide inspiration to say someone in my situation has achieved this and I like this topic so this is something I can achieve too.  

Volunteer Presenter

They offer lots of support program for all types of PEOPLE like me

Grade 9 Student Meskanahk Ka Nipa Wit School

The program is a wonderful opportunity for the grade 6 students to learn about university (and other post-secondary options) by helping to remove possible stigmas and concerns.  Encourages them to think about their futures and options.
