Flin Flon School Division students will be taking part in Take Our Kids to Work Day tomorrow. Hapnot Collegiate Essential Skills Director Linda Lowe says it involves all of their grade nine students at the Collegiate and the students will be experiencing many different careers such as teaching, administration, banking, retail and various trades just to name a few. She says it’s more than just a fun day away from school, it is an opportunity to learn and understand the importance of staying in school by seeing first hand the skills required in the work force today. She adds for the parents it’s an opportunity to prepare the child for the future by demonstrating their experience and skills needed on a daily basis for their job and participating in a shared experience such as this with their child.
Take Our Kids to Work Day is a national program in its 23rd year supported by the Learning Partnership, Flin Flon School Division and local employers.
