Community Service
​As part of the requirements for an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD), every student must complete a minimum of 40 hours of community service. The purpose of this requirement is to encourage students to develop an awareness and understanding of civic responsibility and the role they can play in supporting and strengthening their communities.
