There is a structured time block called Seminar Time every Wednesday throughout the year for advisory meetings, group college counseling, life and study skills workshops, library research, career planning, school assemblies, performance venues, and intramural competitions. Each secondary student is assigned to a particular activity during Seminar Time and is required to attend.
Pinewood Secondary Seminar Schedule 2015-2016
The Seminar schedule is designed as much in advance as possible. However, as interesting opportunities arise for Seminars throughout the year via guest speakers & performers, student ideas and Student Council activities, they are added to the Wednesday schedule for the benefit of student learning and engagement.
