​​​​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 three 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.
