Career Education Grades 8-10

We will host a variety of career-focused learning activities for our junior students this year, including a half-day dedicated on Wednesday, November 2. This is the annual Canada-wide Take Our Kids to Work Day for Grade 9 students. Grade 9s are to accompany a parent/guardian/family/friend to their place of work for the day to job shadow and get a glimpse into the world of work. On this same day we will also host volunteers from local businesses, financial institutions and the Junior Achievement organization to present financial literacy sessions for our Grades 8 and 10 students. Similarly, classroom teachers are committed to helping students make connections with the knowledge and skills they are learning in the classroom to 'real world' issues, challenges and possible future careers. For more information on the November 2 activities, please contact Mr. Thomas at the school at rthomas@sd38.bc.ca
