Grade 12 exams a problem again By HON CALDWELL Staff Writer The dales set by the provin- cial government for Grade 12 departmental examinations in June will cause some problems in Letlibndge because ot the city's semcstered school sys- tem. The examinations are set for June 12 to 19. The Lethbridge semester ends June 7, which means there is a period of nearly two weeks before stu- dents arc out of school for the year. The Tuesday night meeting nf pnhiic school board was told the dates are causing in- convenience to many parents who have already scheduled their summer vacations and now are forced to change them. Students who had expected to be availalble for summer jobs before June 19 also face a prob- lem. The length of time between the end of regular classes and the start of deparfmenlals is also seen as a disadvantage to students uho are not particu- larly studious, although it will have the opposite effect on the more studious students. In an effort to lessen the ef- fects of the examination dates, the public school Iward has de- cided that the last day for in- struction in non-departmental subjects will be May 31 while instruction -in departmenta subjects will conclude June (ill Local examinations in non- departmenlal .vubjecLs will be written June 1 lo G.
