Flin Flon School Division will be taking part in Take Our Kids To Work Day Wednesday. Hapnot Collegiate Essential Skills Director Linda Lowe says all of the grade nine students will be involved by spending the day at the workplace of a parent, relative or friend. She says this is a great opportunity for students to see firsthand what their parents do on the job and get a taste of the workforce within the community. She adds for parents it’s an opportunity to prepare children for the future by demonstrating the experience and skills needed on a daily basis for their jobs and participating in a shared experience with their child. Lowe says the students will be experiencing many different careers such as teaching, health, administrative, trades and banking just to name a few.
Take Our Kids to Work Day is a national program in its 24th year supported by the Learning Partnership, SAFE Manitoba, Hapnot Collegiate and many local employers.
