v examine and demonstrate connections between their learning and their future

v exhibit the attributes of a BC graduate
Graduations Transitions is an opportunity for students to reflect on their knowledge and abilities and plan for life after graduation by collecting evidence of their achievements in the following required areas:
Many school courses are designed to meet one or more of the Prescribed Learning Outcomes of Graduation Transitions. Students can learn dual or multiple credits for taking courses that partially fulfill these requirements.

Life after graduation includes the world of work and community responsibilities. As part of Graduation Transitions, students gain employability skills through participation in at least 30 hours of work experience and/or community service.
Daily physical activity and a commitment to fitness and physical and emotional well-being are key to healthy living. In this component of Graduation Transitions, students develop the knowledge, attitudes, and habits needed to be healthy individuals by maintaining a personal health plan and participating in at least 150 minutes of moderate/vigorous physical activity each week in Grades 10 through 12.
Graduation Transitions requires students to explore personal and career goals during their secondary school years and create a plan for life after graduation. Transition planning is an ongoing process throughout the graduation program years and requires the completion of a transition plan, culminating in a final Grade 12 presentation.
