Flin Flon School Division grade nine students are taking part in Take Our Kids to Work Day tomorrow. Hapnot Collegiate Counselor Sandra Garinger says around 40 students are going to work with their parents. She says the idea was started by an organization called the Learning Partnership and it was designed as an opportunity for students to get out and get a chance to see what type of work is out there, mainly what their parents are doing. She says they see things at home but they don’t always know what’s going on in the other part of their parent’s lives so it’s a chance for them to go out and also get a chance to see what some options are for their future plans.
Those who don’t go out do work in class related to career choices.
Take Our Kids to Work Day is a national program in its 21st year sponsored by the Learning Partnership.
