November 2, 2011 - St. Charles Elementary Catholic School opened their door for students participating in 'Take Our Kids to Work' program. This program provides an opportunity for Grade 9 students to develop an appreciation for the importance of staying in school, begin career discussions with adults about the work they do, and to gain a better understanding of the complexity of career choices and the benefits of early education' states Sandra St.Denis, principal at St. Charles Elementary. While job shadowing, the Gr.9 students were able to participate in Aboriginal Medicine Wheel and Grandfather teaching presented by Elder, Vince Pawis.
