Last Friday March 12, Grade 11 students met virtually with 19 ISL Alumni to learn more about different fields of study, applying to university, and life away from home.
The Head of Outreach and Engagement and the Grade 11 Grade Advisory Leader, with consultation from the Higher Education Office, put together a diverse panel of young Alumni studying ten different fields in Europe, the UK, the US, and Canada.
During breakout room sessions, Grade 11 students were able to ask questions of, and seek advice from, Alumni. This was the first of what we hope will become an annual event and part of our newly established Alumni Mentoring Programme.
Several Grade 11 students have already requested additional sessions with other fields of study and/or universities and many positive connections were made with Alumni further assisting current students. We look forward to developing this programme.
