Attention grade 9 students: Please follow this link (Johnsons Horizon Scholarship 2016) for the application for Johnson HORIZONS program for 2016. For those of you who are not familiar with this, it is a scholarship offered through MUN in partnership with Johnson Inc. They offer 50 scholarships to grade 9 students across the province each valued at $1200.00 ($200.00 received in Aug of this year; $1000.00 applied automatically to tuition upon entry to Memorial University). Selected candidates are then welcomed into a leadership development program that will work with you throughout high school and will extend into your time spent at Memorial University of Newfoundland. All schools in Newfoundland and Labrador with a grade nine class will be eligible to nominate one student to enter into this program.
Please return applications to Ms. Blagdon by Wednesday, March 23rd, 2016. There will be NO extensions to accepting these applications, thus students who do not pass it in on time will not be guaranteed that their application will be entered.
A sincere thank-you to our school community and parents for dropping off treats to the staff last week!
