Congratulations to Earth and Space Science Dual-Credit Students
Students registered in the Earth and Space Science course (SES 4UI) have the opportunity to complete the expectations for both the high school credit as well as a credit equivalent to a university course. Ten students at GPSS completed the dual-credit course during first semester. These students have already earned a university credit (University of Waterloo Earth Sciences 121 or Wilfrid Laurier University Anatomy of Earth GL101) before graduating high school! The marks earned at the university level range from the mid-70's to over 90%. Tremendous achievement by the GPSS students!
