In Partnership with York Region District School Board and Candian Tamil Alumni Association
The Association Of Srilankan Graduates of Canada held it's annual flagship event, Guidance For Higher Studies on November 3, 2018 at Middlefield Collegiate Institute.
The event was organized in partnership with York Region District School Board(YRDSB), Canadian Tamil Alumni Association(CTAA), Canadian Tamil Medical Association(CTMA), Srilankan Accountants Association Of Canada(SAAC), and Educators For Tamil Students' Success(YRDSB) to promote higher education among Tamil Youths.
This extremely useful event for high school students and their parents was conducted from 10 am till 4 pm at Middlefield Collegiate Institute. This workshop is designed to serve as a forum for dissemination of information, exchange of ideas, and sharing of academic and professional experiences.
The moderators and the panelist were selected on the basis of their success in their chosen profession and their ability relate to youth. As usual, ASGC conducted the event free of charge and would provide free lunch to all students and parents who attend the event.
The high school students received vital information about the selection of courses and the career paths of different professions from the young graduates in the Tamil community. Similary, parents would also collect very valuable information from a panel of speakers who have been involved with parent-school-community issues.
Needless to say, we were quite thrilled to meet all the students and parents at the event!
