All students in grades 10, 11 and 12 are able to gain valuable experience by spending one day in a career area of their choice. Students will gain a sense of what is involved in that occupation and learn about job requirements and career paths.
Sign up for Job Shadows with Ms. Banka in the Career Centre. You will find many choices to pick from in the Job Shadow Booklet or drop in to see Ms. Banka and she can help narrow it down for you.

  •    Get all the necessary signatures and return to Ms. Banka  BEFORE attending the Job Shadow
  •    Once the Job Shadow is finished, return ALL the paperwork to Ms. Banka in order to receive hours for this placement.
