Grad Transitions The Basics
Graduation Transitions encourages students to:
 take ownership of their health and learning
 examine and demonstrate connections between their learning and their future
 create a plan for their growth and development as skilled, healthy, knowledgeable, participating
citizens
 exhibit attributes of a BC graduate
Components
Graduation Transitions is an opportunity for students to reflect on their knowledge and abilities and plan
for life after graduation by collecting evidence of their achievements in the following required areas:
1. Personal Health
Daily physical activity and a commitment to fitness and physical and emotional well-being are key to
healthy living. In this component of Graduation Transitions, students develop the knowledge, attitudes,
and habits needed to be healthy individuals by maintaining a personal health plan and participating in at
least 150 minutes per week of moderate to vigorous physical activity in each of Grades 10, 11, and 12.
Personal Health Prescribed Learning Outcomes
It is expected that students will:
 demonstrate the knowledge, attitudes, and positive habits needed to be healthy individuals,
responsible for their own physical and emotional well-being, by
o engaging, from Grade 10 to Grade 12, in at least 150 minutes per week of moderate to
vigorous physical activity
o developing a long-term personal healthy living plan appropriate to their lifestyle that
describes
 sound nutritional habits
 regular exercise routines
 emotional health management (e.g., ways to manage stress)
 positive health choices
2. Community Connections
Life after graduation includes the world of work and community responsibilities. As part of Graduation
Transitions, students gain employability skills through participation in at least 30 hours of work experience
and/or community service.
Community Connections Prescribed Learning Outcomes
It is expected that students will:
 demonstrate the skills required to work effectively and safely with others and to succeed as
individual and collaborative workers, by
o participating in at least 30 hours of work experience and/or community service
o describing the duties performed, the connections between the experience and
employability/life skills, and the benefit to the community and to the student
2
3. Career and Life
Graduation Transitions requires students to explore personal and career goals during their secondary
school years and create a plan for life after graduation. Transition planning is an ongoing process
throughout the graduation program years and requires the completion of a transition plan, culminating in a
final Grade 12 presentation. Students are required to complete a Learning Profile (based on Howard
Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences) and speak to it during their exit presentation, tying it to their personal
career and educational goals.
Career and Life Prescribed Learning Outcomes
It is expected that students will:
 demonstrate the confidence and competency needed to be self-directed individuals, by
o developing a comprehensive plan that indicates they are prepared to successfully transition
from secondary school, which includes
 completion of transition activities that are relevant to and support their career, life,
and learning goals
 identification and communication of achievements that reflect the development of
the attributes of a BC graduate
 identification and communication of costs and funding sources associated with
education, career, and life options after graduation
o presenting selected components of their transition plan to members of the school and/or
community
Frequently Asked Questions
When can students start acquiring their 30 hours of work experience and/or community service?
Students can begin acquiring applicable hours in Grade 10. A student can therefore begin documenting
his/her time as of July 1st (following their Grade 9 school year). This outcome may be met through a
reference letter outlining aproximate number of hours worked durring a specific period. This reference
letter should come from an employer or volunteer supervisor. A family member is not an acceptable
reference.
Where do students obtain the necessary forms?
Please see page 18-20. See Mr. Yost if you need more sheets.
If a student acquires 30 hours of work experience and/or community service by doing different activities,
does each activity require its own separate forms?
Yes, because each of the forms for the Community Connections Component refers to a single experience. It
is recommended that a student complete the applicable forms immediately following an experience to
ensure that a thoughtful and meaningful reflection is made. Extra forms are available from Mr. Yost.
3
What are students to do with their completed documents for Personal Health, Community Connections,
and Career and Life?
a) Completed documents must be submitted along with the Graduation Transitions booklet and
submitted to Mr. Yost for verification, evaluation, and setting up the appointment for the personal
interview.
b) Personal Health and Community Connections documents can be evaluated in Grades 10, 11 or 12
(although it is recommended that these evaluations be completed before a student’s graduation
year)
Career and Life documents will be evaluated.(the student is expected to update and/or revise these
documents that were introduced in Planning 10).
Students should confirm that returned work has been completed satisfactorily, as some work might need
to be revised and re-submitted to be considered complete.
Important: Students should keep their Graduation Transitions Student Booklet in a safe place to avoid
damage or loss (this documentation will be used during their presentation in May 2016).
How can students acquire physical activity time?

How do students document their 150 minutes per week of physical activity?
Students will be required to complete one or combination of three options beginning September 1, 2014
ending May 1st 2017. These options include:
Option 1: Student is enrolled in a PE or Dance class.
Option 2: Student participates in team/individual sport in the community or within the school.
Option 3: Student completes a Daily Physical Activity Log
The appropriate forms can be found in this booklet.
What can students do to acquire work experience and/or community service hours?
1. Extra-curricular Activities: Many school-sponsored activities require student volunteers to plan, organize
and/or facilitate events (e.g. lunch time intramural games, athletic league games and tournaments,
student dances, fine arts productions, parent/teacher conferences, etc.). Students can speak to any of
the following school personnel to inquire about possible opportunities:
 Athletic Director
 Leadership Teacher(s)
 Teacher(s) / Event Sponsor(s)
2. Community Activities: Students can acquire hours by volunteering at their places of worship, Cities of
Abbotsford or Chilliwack sponsored events, food banks, political party offices, elementary schools, with
theatre companies, environmental projects, fundraising campaigns, sporting/athletic competitions, etc.
3. Seasonal/Part-time Employment: Students who are employed or involved in entrepreneurial activities
(e.g. paid tutor, music instructor, etc.) can acquire hours through these activities, as well.
Note: Work experience and/or community service opportunities may be communicated or advertised on
the School webstie (abbotsfordintegratedarts.ca), the Grad bulletin board, or in daily announcements
What is involved with the presentation in Grade 12?
Your presentations should be approximately 15 minutes in length and will require you to communicate
your plans for the following year(s) and to highlight some of your accomplishments in Grades 10, 11,
and/or 12. Get creative! If you are a dancer, incorporate a dance to demonstrate your growth throughout
your high school years. If you are a musician, incorporate a performance piece. If you love working with
computers, create a PowerPoint presentation or a digital portfolio.
The documents completed as you progress through this booklet, along with evidence and materials
collected throughout the three years, can be used during this presentation.
We encourage you to collect evidence along the way as this will greatly reduce the time needed to prepare
for the presentation in May of your Grade 12 year (Grads of 2017: May -June 2017)
5
Create an outline for your presentation. Include 3 to 4 key organizers to guide your presentation talk.
Attach a copy of your outline to this booklet.
Key organizers could include
 highlight your accomplishments in Grades 10 – 12 and indicate how your learning experiences have
prepared you for a successful transition to life after secondary school (work or post-secondary
schooling),
 provide examples of and talk about your growth in your art specialty,
 provide examples of and talk about your growth in your academic courses,
 communicate your plans/goals for the following 2 – 3 years, and indicate how your school
experiences, volunteer experiences, work experiences to your plans/goals have prepared you for
life after secondary school.
 communicate your plans/goals and share the steps you will take to accomplish those plans/goals
 identify fundamental skills you have developed (e.g., communicating, teamwork, managing
information, thinking, problem solving, using numbers) and how you will transfer them to other
situations beyond A.S.I.A in life, school and/or work,
 identify self-management skills developed (e.g., demonstrating positive attitudes and behaviours;
being responsible, adaptable, respectful) and how you will transfer them to other situations beyond
A.S.I.A in life, school and/or work.
You are encouraged to bring in a portfolio of
significant projects, assignments, reflections that
have influenced you, changed your thinking,
propelled you toward a positive transition into “life
after ASIA”. The portfolio will provide you with
evidence and examples to support your comments.

may require specific courses and achievements to meet admission requirements.
University colleges offer a range of options such as: university degrees, university transfer, trade and
technical programs, GED, upgrade, continuing education, one year certificates and
two year diplomas.
Trade and Technical Schools:
Admission is competitive and students must have specific courses to meet admission requirements.
