School perseverance is everybody’s business!

Every student who stays in school and earns a diploma or qualification is one more young person who has broken the dropout cycle and is headed toward a brighter future.

Let’s help our young people stay motivated at school and keep supporting their efforts through the end of the school year to give them the best chance of achieving their potential. 

Let’s use this week to create a wave of encouragement and motivation to carry them along. Let’s show them we’re there for them!


Because with the right support, everyone can persevere!

From February 13 to 17, 2023, Hooked on School Days pays tribute to all the people in young Quebecer’s lives who make a difference. We recognize their crucial role in students’ motivation, resilience, and self-confidence, and we salute their commitment to making perseverance at school a priority. Their congratulations, guidance, encouragement, explanations, sympathetic ear, and support are of great benefit to young people, and indeed to all of society.
