Enrichment Opportunities

Applications for enrichment opportunities are available in the Enrichment Basket in room 233. If you need another copy of the booklet of enrichment opportunities for the board, these are also available.

If you would like notice of ongoing opportunities, add your name to the enrichment list by contacting Ms. Joan McCormick in Program Support (rm. 233).

Refer also to the “Enrichment & Extension” section under the “Academic Programs” menu.

Community Connections

Since 1994 the Waterloo Catholic District School Board (WCDSB) and the Waterloo Region District School Board (WRDSB) have been publishing the Community Connections information booklet outlining support services for persons with disabilities in conjunction with an information night of the same name.

The intent of this booklet is to provide you with connections to resources that are available in our communities within Waterloo Region. It offers an easy way to search for options and make decisions about which programs fit your needs.

Refer to the St. Mary’s Course Calendar for course descriptions
