For the past seven years Grand Forks Secondary School has participated in a national event called “Take Our Kids to Work Day.” This is a job shadowing initiative program put on by the Learning Partnership Organization (www.thelearningpartnership.ca) every November.
For one day all Grade 9 students go out into a variety of workplaces with their parents, a relative or a community host. It is a great opportunity for students to explore different career options, make community connections and experience a “work” day.
We would like to send out a huge thank you to all the community hosts and businesses for allowing our students to come into their workplaces and experience a day-in-the-life as an employee.
