All of Torah High’s courses comply with Ministry of Education policies and guidelines in which there is a minimum of 110 hours of instruction in accordance with Ontario Secondary Schools Program Diploma Requirements (OSSD).
Experiential learning may be part of the delivery of the curriculum in all disciplines and provides students with a chance to apply their classroom learning to outside opportunities.
Through the Torah High course, students will be completing experiential requirements that are tied directly to the curriculum expectations of their courses. Experiential opportunities include seminars, weekend retreats, guest lectures, and field trips, etc., and are completed outside of the regular class hours. Students are given the opportunity to reflect upon the experiential experience by completing evaluations of each experience they attend. Students bring it all together through classroom discussions and a written report that connects the sessions to the course expectations.
Cooperative education programs allow students to earn secondary school credits while completing a work placement in the community. These programs complement students’ academic programs and are valuable for all students, whatever their postsecondary destination.
Torah High does not offer co-operative education.
Job Shadowing and Twinning
Job shadowing allows for students to spend half a day, and up to three days, observing a worker in a specific occupation. Job twinning allows students to observe a cooperative education student at his/her placement for one-half to one day. Torah High does not offer job shadowing or twinning to our students in Grades 9-12 as part of curriculum delivery, however, Torah High does take students on field trips to various work places.
