Tutorial TimeBeginning this October, a new system of student tutorials will be implemented at Byrne Creek Secondary School. These will be for all students during the first 45 minutes of every Wednesday, 8:40 to 9:25 a.m., until the end of the school year.
In these periods, students will attend supervised study groups. Attendance is mandatory, and students are expected to arrive on time and show respect for their surroundings, respect for their fellow students, and respect for learning among all members of the tutorial.
The groups will differ slightly according to grade level. Grade 8 students will be assigned lessons in social responsibility and study skills, and guided by a group of leadership students in Grade 11. Students from grades 9 to 11 will have a study period with peer tutors assisting them, and they will be expected to work on their homework, readings, or class assignments.
