The OHS LINK program is a transition program that allows Grade 9 students to receive support and guidance from senior students who have been through the challenges that high school poses. The goal of the program is for all Grade 9 students to have a positive experience during their first year of high school.
LINK Leaders are Grade 11 and 12 students who serve as positive role models, motivators, leaders and teachers who guide the Grade 9 students to discover what it takes to be successful during the transition to high school. Students must apply to become LINK Leaders and successful candidates must complete three full days of training during the summer. Additional training is received during the school year as each Link Leader is required to enroll in an interdisciplinary studies course.
