​​​Navy Co-op students at basic training in Quebec.JPGFourteen GECDSB students received credits toward their Ontario Secondary School Diplomas this summer and gained valuable hands-on experience in a potential future career in the Canadian Navy.

Cooperative education with businesses and organizations in our community is a growing complement to classroom instruction in the Greater Essex County District School Board. Our students earned approximately 3500 credits in co-op placements during the 2017-18 school year.

The naval co-op is a unique program that incorporates months of classroom work and 3 weeks of basic training in Quebec. Participants complete their Navy basic training qualification by the end of the program 

Students and staff celebrated the conclusion of their odyssey with a graduation ceremony at the HMCS Hunter in Windsor.
