Clarington Central SS will be hosting a University Fair on Wednesday, October 26 from 6-8 pm.

Please plan to attend, if this is your destination after high school. Parents are also encouraged to attend.
Have students interested in an arts program at Durham College?
We are hosting portfolio information sessions designed to help students ensure their work will meet the requirements of their program. The sessions are free and there is no need to pre-register. This is an opportunity to meet the teachers and other students and review past student’s work as well as present your own pieces. Faculty will be on hand to offer helpful critique and suggestions.
A portfolio is required for the following programs at Durham College,
• Graphic Design
• Game Development
The sessions will be held on,
• Thursday, November 17, 2016
• Tuesday, November 22, 2016
• Wednesday, January 18, 2017
All sessions are from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Oshawa campus, Gordon Willey building, room B105A.
This year our Leadership class has decided to continue our support to local charities. We will be donating our items to the Denise House and Bethesda House (both are shelters for abused women and their children) and Simcoe Hall Settlement House. Simcoe Hall Settlement House provides Christmas hampers to over 1,500 registered families in the Durham Region. The continued expansion of a low wage economy makes it increasingly difficult for full time families to live full time lives on part-time wages. Please be generous and help your neighbours; it is hopeful that we can help provide some food on their tables and gifts beneath the tree on Christmas morning.
Each class will receive a family that has a wish list for each member. Gift giving need not be limited to the wish list.
We will accept and need the following items as well:
Students 15 years of age and older assist in the Treats & Treasures Café and Gift Shop, Hospitality Program, C.A.R.E. Team on the Complex Continuing Care Nursing Unit and the New to You Shoppe (located off site - Saturday shifts only. Please come to guidance for more information.
Clarington Fire requires student volunteers to assist at upcoming community events. Duties will include putting on their "Sparky" costume and assisting with the "Hazard House". Sign up to volunteer in Guidance.
