Are you interested in being a First Responder next year? Are you currently in grade 10 or 11? We are now accepting applications for 2023-2024.
To apply, please submit a letter of intent that includes the following:
Why you want to be a First Responder
How you will apply your First Responder certification when you graduate from WPGA
Your experience working with people (e.g. babysitting, WPGA summer camps, Pedalheads volunteer)
Note you must have a current or expired "Canadian Red Cross CPR-C with AED" or higher (e.g. Bronze Cross, Bronze Medallion); a photocopy (not the original) of your certification must be attached to your letter of intent. The CPR-C course may be taken at a future date but must be taken prior to attending the First Responder course.
Please submit your application by Thursday, December 15 at 3:45pm to room 204's mailbox (no exceptions). Only successful candidates will be contacted. More than 25 teachers, administrators and staff will be involved in the selection process.
Reimbursement Policy: Only students who are First Responders for two years (grades 11 and 12) will receive 100% reimbursement of their course fees. Students who serve one year (grade 12) will receive a 50% reimbursement. The cost for the course is currently $450; however, this is subject to change by the course registration date.
