usual time, 2:45 pm, on December 18. The first day
back after the winter break is January 4, 2010.

Upon our return to classes we will be beginning the

                           Post Secondary Applications

All grade 12 students should be aware of the early application deadlines for the institutions they are interested
in applying to. The large universities will be accepting early applications in January/February 2010. Students

The forms are available in the   counselling department and at the office.


The PSI Selections form is now available online for students graduating this year. Paper “PSI Choices Form”

who expect to graduate this year and are applying to a PSI.

An instructional document is available at https://www/ updates/.         This document
includes snap shots of all the screens students will use to select PSIs.

Students access this online form by logging into the Student Secure Web (SSW) site; and click the “Post Secondary Institutions Selections”
menu option. Note that students who do not yet have a SSW account will need to create one prior to gaining
access to the PSI Selections form.

Students’ PSI selections must b e submitted by April 30 for interim transcript information to be forwarded to BC
and Ontario Universities Application Centre (OUAC) institutions in May. For final transcript information to be
sent to PSIs by July 31, 2010, students must submit their PSI selections by June 30. In addition to the BC
Electronic PSIs option and the OUAC Electronic PSIs option in Section 1 of the form, student may submit a
maximum of six selections. Requests to send transcripts to additional PSIs can be made for a fee by
completing a “transcript Request form” available at:

If a student can’t find a specific PSI in Sections 1,2 or 3 of the PSI Selections Form, please send an email with
the name and address of the PSI to:

After submitting their selections, students will receive a printable confirmation page for reference purposes.
At any point in time, students can log back into SSW and view their selections by using the “View PSI
selections” menu option, PSI selections submitted by mid-May will appear on the Transcript Verification
Reports that are scheduled to be posted on May 20.

                                THE PRINCESS PROJECT
                           The Princess Project is similar to the sister project—The Cinderella Project.
                           With growing need for these programs, the Princess Project was established to
                           serve the needs of the girls from Surrey, Langley, Abbotsford, Aldergrove and

The Cinderella Project provides formal gowns, shoes, make-up, nails and hair for female graduating
students who cannot afford the cost. Similarily, it also provides male students with tuxedos, shoes, shirts,
ties and hair.

                    The Princess Project’s goal this year is to complete Graduation Outfits for 150 girls.
                    They hope to expand and be able to provide male students as well—presently they do
                    have a very limited supply of tuxedos, but hope to have much more for 2011.

                    The Princess Project is still collecting new and previously loved dresses, shoes,
                    purses, and accessories for the girls. They are also collecting new items for the gift
                    bags, such as make-up, hygiene products, hair accessories, and other fun items. They
                    are still looking for door prize items, and donations of services from hair and make-
                    up artists, transportation companies, and gift cards. Cash donations are accepted via
                    Paypal using the email address listed below:

If you have any questions or would like to donate, please contact the email address.

If you know of a student who could benefit from this project, please let one of the counsellors know
about the situation so we can refer them to the project. The gala event, where the students get to select
their gowns etc. happens in March 2010. It will be at a yet to be named Langley Hotel.
