Forestry

Forestry at GREC
As the only Forestry program in LDSB, we are unique by design but then when you add in the beautiful setting of our site, it solidifies our unique nature. Our Forestry program is not just about trees, it is about sustainability, green industries and technology. The program operates in second semester where our students register for four major credits. This allows us the opportunity to complete our certifications as a group in the first year and to work with our community partners on a weekly basis. We work within our school and in our community to provide services and education, such as cutting, planting, mapping and identification. Our Forestry students have been instrumental in our community garden providing fresh produce for our food bank. Because of our reputation and quality experience, local businesses, organizations and residential members have contacted us to provide services thereby strengthening our community and our sense of Gryphon pride and GRIT. We have a very high success rate and a number of our Forestry students have gained the skills required to obtain summer employment, acceptance in their desired post-secondary program and gained full-time employment. Our Forestry students literally and figuratively achieve great heights!!

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.
