Flin Flon School Division Grade nine students are taking part in Take Our Kids to Work day today. Hapnot Collegiate Counselor Sandra Garinger says 50 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 go 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 that some options are for their future plans.
Take our Kids to Work day is a national program in its 19th year sponsored by the Learning Partnership.
