Attention students needing to accumulate community involvement hours.  Brantwood is currently looking for volunteers at their school events, fundraising events, and programs, among other things.  Please see the opportunity posted on the board outside of Student Services.  Brantwood also welcomes co-op placements.

Students are reminded to ensure that the community hours they accumulate are eligible according to Ministry guidelines.  Hours should be for non-profit organizations and not duties that someone would normally be paid for.  Hours cannot be accumulated during school hours.  If you are unsure if your hours will count, please contact your guidance counsellor.  The community involvement hours forms are available on the black shelving unit in Student Services and they include information on the back about eligible and ineligible activities.  Again, when in doubt, ask questions.
