Link Leaders are grade eleven and twelve students who are trained to work with the incoming grade nine class and other new students who are joining Nottawasaga Pines. The Link Leaders run grade nine Orientation Day before school starts in August. They are assigned a small group of grade nines to work with that day and throughout the year, and are encouraged to pass on some valuable information about being successful in high school. Link Crew groups meet periodically during the school year to touch base, discuss problems and plan social activities. We know that the more contact a grade nine has with their Link Leader greatly impacts the success of a grade nine student.
Link Leaders are also responsible for acting as spirited student leaders in our school and local community, by assisting with various activities and events. They are assigned as buddies to exchange students, volunteer with charity events (Terry Fox Run, staff versus student hockey game, Relay for Life, etc), and serve as student secretaries and tour guides during NPSS open houses. Our Link Leaders are an invaluable asset to our school.
“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more…you are a leader!” ~ John Quincy Adams
