Start looking into this NOW!!

High School Students

General Scholarship Application for UNB Scholarships - All high school applicants should apply for scholarship support using the general application. It covers just about all of our scholarships available to high school students who are starting an undergraduate program at UNB.

Special Scholarship Applications - these scholarships require a special application in addition to the general application because they require additional information about you to make a decision.

Did you receive a scholarship offer from UNB? If so, please respond here before May 15th.

All students who have been admitted to a UNB degree program on the basis of their high school marks are considered for scholarship support ranging from $500 to $60,000.

Upon request, we will revisit the calculation of your scholarship average when we receive your final official high school transcript in June. Please send your request for re-calculation and any other inquiries to

Payroll and Benefits Administration is a 16-week program designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to process an organization's payroll, communicate payroll information to its stakeholders and perform basic accounting tasks as they relate to payroll and benefits. This program is a great addition to NBCC’s Miramichi campus as the federal government has recently opened the Federal Payroll Centre in the city.

Introduction to Skilled Trades is a 19-week program in which students will explore building and construction, metals and manufacturing, motive power, and the industrial sector while obtaining valuable math, communications and workplace safety training. Some courses in this program may be transferable to other trades programs at NBCC.

For those students who would like to experience a test run of the college environment, we have a few Student for a Day events coming up. It’s a great way to learn more about NBCC, meet the instructors, and connect with current students to get a better idea of what college is all about. The upcoming dates are:

· January 24

· February 28

· March 27

As always, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact your regional recruitment advisor or myself.

Start watching for afterschool PORTFOLIO HELP sessions next week...listen for morning announcements, or just ask me on a day you know you can stay, and I will plan on staying for you. I have lots of scrapbook paper/ embellishments, but check out the dollar store as well for more personalized themes.

Don't have a binder yet? Just a plain binder will do now (see Ms. Cogswell)...but look at Staples for one that has a front pocket to put your handsome picture!
Post Secondary
Extra Curricular


Details will be coming, but plan on Saturday, October 20th.
Ask friends, neighbours, relatives,  teachers, whoever you can think of to help you out.
Baking should be picked up by you Saturday morning no later than 10 am, or your friend can drop them off.
If someone feels they can not bake for you at this time, ask them if they would like to donate a cake mix and icing, and you could make cupcakes to sell! OR, maybe they would like to just donate cash this time for the cause, and maybe bake for you in the Spring bake sale.
Good luck!
Try and be available to set up and sell that day as well... not sure of a start time yet, but will let you know. (usually 1pm). Sometimes there is leftover food, and grads can be prepared to sell at local stores as a "trunk sale". 
See you there!

Grad Practices & Speeches

Are you getting excited?  We will practice on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday at noon in the gym, as stated at the grad parent meeting.  It is important that everyone show up on time.  The first practice takes the longest - about one hour.

Speeches: You should email a copy to me and Ms. Ingalls.  She will edit them for you and make suggestions for improvements.   You need to have them ready for practice - but I hear them privately so it won't spoil the surprise for your classmates.

See you soon.
Mrs. Linton
