Grade 9 students Kayla MacIsaac, Rebecca Green, Abby Gail Buote, and Miranda Merritt spent the day at Charlottetown City Hall today for the annual Take Our Kids to Work day.
Take Our Kids to Work is an annual program in which Grade 9 students are hosted by parents, friends, relatives and volunteers at workplaces across the country every November. The program supports career development by helping students connect school, the world of work, and their own futures. The initiative is sponsored by The Learning Partnership, a national charitable organization dedicated to building stakeholder partnerships to support, promote and advance publicly funded education in Canada.
Former Charlottetown Deputy Mayor Stu MacFadyen participated in the initiative, along with City staff and other City officials, by giving the students a brief history of City Hall and information on how the City Corporation operates.
