E.H.S - Community Service hours

Community involvement (service hours)

All high school students in the province of Ontario are required to complete 40 hours of community service as a graduation requirement. The purpose is to encourage students to develop awareness and understanding of civic responsibility of the role they can play and the contributions they can make in supporting and strengthening their communities. These goals complement academic and work experience programs that are currently taking place in our schools.

Guidelines for completing the community service

Students can complete their community service hours in a variety of places, starting from community events, volunteering to help organize school activities such as , sports meets, art shows, music productions, bus monitoring, parents nights, after-school programs, and even the library.

Ineligible Activities

The ministry has developed a list of activities that may not be chosen as community involvement activities. These are referred to as ineligible activities. An ineligible activity is an activity that:

E.H.S - Academic Pathways

Secondary school programs are destination focused. Course streams in Grade 11 and 12 are designed to prepare students for particular destinations after they finish their secondary school program (College, University, Apprenticeship, Workplace).


Students in Grade 9 and 10 will take their compulsory courses (English, Mathematics, Sci-ence, French, and Geography/History) in one of two streams - Applied or Academic. All other courses will be taken at the Open level.

Applied Stream

A focus on the essential concepts of the discipline. Applied courses develop students’ knowledge and skills by emphasizing practical, concrete applications of the essential concepts while incorporating theoretical applications, as appropriate.

Academic Stream

A focus on the essential concepts of the discipline plus addi-tional related concepts. Academic courses develop students’ knowledge and skills by emphasizing theoretical, abstract appli-cations of the essential concepts while incorporating practical applications, as appropriate.

Open Level

An open level course has one set of expectations for that sub-ject and is appropriate for all students.

Locally Developed

Building courses are offered in Mathematics, Science, Eng-lish, and Canadian History. These courses will provide support for students making the transition to high school by enhancing their skills to allow them to be successful at secondary school. These courses also require the recommendation of the elementary teacher and parent. Recommendations for these courses will be taken at course selection time.

Grade 11/12 Streams

Courses in Grade 11 and 12 will be offered in streams that are related to students’ destinations after high school - Workplace, College, or University. Some courses in Grades 11 and 12 will be offered at the Open Level.
