C a na d i a n C a r eer C o l l ege Volume 1, Issue 1 Fall 2004 Greetings from the Campus Director Welcome to our very first newsletter! Someone once said that one of the most important reasons people love their jobs or school is that they are “in the loop “. This newsletter is designed to communicate to all students, staff and faculty information that pertains to the college. It will also let you know of any new instructors, program starts/changes and upcoming events so that all will be “in the loop”. The success of this newsletter depends on input from staff and students. All submissions are welcome. They will be reviewed for content before publishing. Submissions should be provided “in writing” to Diane or Shelly. Thanks to our administrative staff for undertaking this task.

Law & Justice On September 30, 2004 one of our valued instructors will be moving on to a life of leisure. Preston Quirt, Coordinator of our Law and Justice Division, will be retiring. Preston has been with the college since its inception in 1999. To say that Preston was an asset to this college is to put it mildly. His devotion to quality education and student support has been clear throughout his teaching career. Some comments from his students include: “Preston was a great, knowledgeable, fun teacher.” “I really enjoyed Mr. Quirt’s teaching, most of all his stories.” “Instructor is an excellent speaker and taught the course very well. Preston’s tireless devotion to students both in class and after graduating will not soon be forgotten. Please join us in wishing Preston a wonderful retirement!

Attendance Please remember that attendance and marks are faxed to HRDC for those students who request it as a special service. It is ultimately the responsibility of each student to provide HRDC with the information they require. Books The normal process for books is for each student to pick up all books as soon as they have arrived. If you have opted to pick up each book as you go, there is no guarantee the book will be available from the Registrar’s office. Requests from our Sudbury and Barrie campuses will take priority. Missing Documents Don’t forget to get all your documents in to the Registrar as soon as possible. You will not have access to your marks if you have outstanding information. Every effort has been made to ensure the information contained herein is accurate. However, we are not responsible for errors or omissions.
