October Luncheon and Pumpkin Carving

We will be having our next luncheon next week in the multi-purpose room.

Because the multi-purpose room can’t fit everyone at the same time, we have split you into 2 groups:

  • Grades 8, 9 and 12 will have their luncheon on Thursday, Oct. 25th
  • Grades 10 and 11 will have their luncheon on Friday, Oct. 26th

Please come to the multi-purpose room at lunch on your assigned day.

  NOTE: All universities in Canada accept our Language Challenge exam marks. UBC accepts Challenge credits for pre-requisite and requirements for courses and second-language requirements but does not accept Challenge marks as part of the GPA calculation for admission. It is highly recommended that you check with your intended university for their admissions requirements.
