Food Processing

Food Processing at KSS
KSS offers the Food Processing SHSM program and offers a variety of courses at the workplace, apprenticeship, college and university level. We have an industrial kitchen, an Indigenous food garden and close-proximity to the community gardens. We are working on creating a greenhouse/garden space on the school site to support the program. We are motivated within the school to find innovative ways to feed the student population. With the recent development of food processing factories in the city as well as greenhouses and existing food processing plants in the area, there is the potential for sector partnerships as well as coop placements. Additionally, there is opportunity for collaboration between KSS students in Food Processing SHSM and students in the Hospitality and Tourism SHSM at LCVI.

Co-Op

Cooperative education provides secondary school students with a wide range of rigorous learning opportunities connected to communities outside the school. It is designed to recognize and respond to the diversity of Ontario’s student population, and it can engage all students.

 

In cooperative education, students learn in safe, culturally responsive environments in the community, and they are actively involved in determining what they learn, how they learn, when and where they learn, and how they demonstrate their learning.

Students must complete a minimum 2 credit coop in a related course. This can include summer coop and paid coop placements.

Summer coop can happen immediately after a student completes Grade 10.

A student becomes a Grade 11 student July 1st after they complete Grade 10.

Summer coop is a very good option for students who worry that they won't have room in their timetable in Grade 11 or 12 to take two credits of coop.
