SPECIAL NEEDS HIGH SCHOOL IN AHUNTSIC TO BE FORMALLY REBRANDED AS LINKS AT MAY 16 CEREMONY

MONTREAL, MAY 15,  2013 – The 2012-2013 academic year has marked a new beginning for Paul VI High School (9905 Papineau) in Ahuntsic, as it is now officially known as LINKS High School.

A formal inauguration will take place on Thursday, May 16 (10:30 a.m.), with words of welcome  from the students, teachers and Governing Board. A new uniform and logo will be unveiled. A big cake will be served after the ceremony.  

LINKS, which stands for Literacy, Interdependence, Networking, Knowledge and Success, was chosen due to the tremendous changes and improvements over the past two years at the school, which has led to a substantial increase in enrolment.

Over the past two years, the school has adopted the WOTP (Work Oriented Training Path), as well as food preparation, woodworking, photography and videography courses.

LINKS. is an alternative high school providing quality educational programs to students from ages 13 to 21 who have been diagnosed with learning difficulties. Since its founding in 1979, LINKS has offered a unique opportunity for special needs students develop their fundamental academic competencies while benefitting from a variety of work skill and daily living skill classes.

James Fequet is the principal of LINKS and John Grant High School in Côte Saint-Luc.
