RLC Graduate

The following offers a portrait of a Rosseau Lake College student who joined us young and unsure, and is now a confident graduate ready to face the next challenge of life.

It is truly amazing to consider the wide-ranging depth of experience offered by RLC, as well as the level of success ensured by our highly-supportive faculty in this extraordinary learning community.

Community Talks

As educators, we understand the importance of reflection in learning; it is not just the experiences our students have, it is also the process of making sense of those experiences and identifying the essential learning present within them.

The Grade 12 Community Talks are an opportunity to culminate this ongoing process - to look backwards through potentially years of experiences and reflections, to piece them together and make sense of them, finally ending with a clear statement of self.
