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 explains this is a great opportunity for students to see first hand what their parents do on the job and get a taste of the workforce within our community and for the parents it’s an opportunity to prepare children for the future by demonstrating their experience and skills needed on a daily basis for their job and participating in a shared experience with their child. Lowe adds the students will be experiencing many different careers such as teaching, health, administration, trades and banking just to name a few.
Take Our Kids to Work Day is a national program in its 25th year supported by the Learning Partnership, SAFE Work Manitoba, Flin Flon School Division and local employers.
