Current WRDSB students

Current WRDSB grade 8 students will receive course selection information and instructions from their grade 8 teachers.  Students will select their grade 9 courses using MyBlueprint in February.

Non-WRDSB students (living within W-O’s boundaries):

Step 1:

Never attended a WRDSB school?   Complete the online registration form.    Coming in January!

Previously attended a WRDSB school?  Call W-O’s Guidance Department (519-634-5441 ext. 4) or email us at WO_guidance@wrdsb.ca and we will assist you.

Registration forms are due Friday February 23rd, 2023.
