First Step on the way to IB

On Wednesday, Miranda got her letter from Hogwarts from Sir Winston Churchill indicating that she had been accepted as a candidate for the International Baccalaureate program.

On behalf of Sir Winston Churchill High School’s Area 1 Selection Committee for the International Baccalaureate Program (IB), we are pleased to inform you that you have been selected as a Grade 10 student at Sir Winston Churchill High School for the school year commencing September 2019.

You will begin in September as an IB candidate. Grade 10 students at Sir Winston Churchill High School apply for admittance into the IB Program in November/December of their Grade 10 year. Acceptance is based on grades and SWC teacher recommendations.

As you can see, this does not mean that she will be accepted into IB for Grades 11 and 12, but we have confidence in her. This is the first step.

On Thursday night, Miranda and I went over her Grade 10 course selections and planning Grades 11 and 12 with the material we got at the orientation night in November. There are two sessions coming up where incoming IB candidates need to go to SWC to speak to counsellors and set their Grade 10 courses.

We’re very proud of her, and so is her teacher, Ms. McRae, who gave Miranda a card on Friday:

Congratulations on your acceptance to the IB program at Churchill — We know your future holds amazing things!

Damn straight. 😁

  1. Congrats Miranda!!!! What an awesome start to the new year 🙂 Is this the same school she is currently going to?

  2. No, this will be a new school for her. She would have been going to Bowness High School next year. That is the school that she should go to based on the catchment areas.

    Sir Winston Churchill isn’t really farther or harder to get to, though. She will take the C-Train to Dalhousie Station (about 5-10 minutes) and then catch the bus that stops in front of the school. Can easily ride to it when the weather behaves.
