Spotlights on Careers

Spotlights are project and experiential based learning opportunities for Grade 8 students, focused on specific program opportunities as students transition to secondary school. Grade 8 students have the opportunity to work alongside Grade 11 and 12 students while learning about a specific program and making connections to potential career pathways. These opportunities can be anywhere from a few hours to a full day experience. Some of the Spotlights that have been offered include Culinary, Cosmetology, Marine Biology, Construction and Auto Body to name a few. Students have reported that these opportunities not only increase their awareness of program options, but also assist with transition from middle school, leaving them feeling more confident and connected to not only the physical environment of the secondary school, but to the staff and students as well.
