This assessment is a requirement for graduation

The Numeracy Assessment is a new provincial assessment and a graduation requirement for students on the 2018 Graduation Program.  Please see the link above for more information.  


Planning is underway and action will be starting on a 600-seat expansion at Royal Bay Secondary. Led by Knappett Projects Inc., the expansion is set to open September, 2020.

The first phase of construction will begin with the student and staff parking their vehicles in the new lot located at the  far end of the artificial turf field beginning Monday, January 14th, 2019.  Only visitors, drop off and pick up will use the parking lot in front of the school.  The gravel lot behind the portables will also be off limits when construction begins.

We will keep our parent and student community updated frequently on the progress of this build.

Thank you for your patience and understanding throughout this process.
