TA Resources

Many resources to support TA discussions have been shared through the TA Resources folder on the school network in the Collaboration drive.  The TA Calendar and other supporting documents are also available online through this shared Google Drive folder: Esquimalt High School TA Resources & Guides.  Check your school district email for a secure link to these resources or send a request for a new link if needed.

In addition the following resources can support various discussions in TA.

Please email any other resources you would recommend to Mr. Orme.
