Careers and Financial Literacy Day

Wednesday, November 4 is Take Our Kids to Work day across Canada.  All Grade 9s are encouraged to join a parent, relative, neighbour or family friend for a day to learn a little about what is involved in the world of work and begin thinking about future career paths.  At Richmond Secondary, we will also host 30 other professional business speakers from Junior Achievement on the morning of November 4.  Our guests will lead small group sessions on the themes of 'financial literacy' and 'economics for success' and the basic costs of life for all of our Grades 8 and 10 students.  Parents are encouraged to ask their teen "what did you learn today?" to determine what they now think or know now about life after high school.
