11 To All Secondary School Principals Re: Declaration of November 5, 2008 – Take Our Kids to Work Day The annual Take Our Kids to Work day takes place on Wednesday, November 1st during Canada Career Week. Once again, Grade 9 students will have the opportunity of participating in this job shadow (hands-off) experience thanks to the support and assistance of the Learning Partnership of Canada. Approximately 3500 Grade 9 students from the Surrey School District along with thousands of students throughout Canada will accompany parents/guardians to the workplace during this event. The primary objective of Take Our Kids to Work day is to link classroom learning with the workplace and to enhance students understanding of the jobs in their community. It allows students to see their parents in different roles, and to help them understand what their parents do to support a family. For the community, it emphasizes that education goes beyond the classroom and that the preparation of younger generations is a community responsibility. The theme of Take Our Kids to Work 2008 is Essential Skills for Success. These are skills for work, learning and life. The Learning Partnership is committed to working in collaboration with educators, parents, workplaces and government to promote the importance of transferable skills. In support of this educational opportunity, the Board of Trustees passed a motion on September 28, 2006 declaring Wednesday, November 5, 2008 as Take Our Kids to Work day. It was recommended that this event be publicized throughout the school district as this initiative allows the entire community – parents, teachers, and members of the business sector – to play an important role in the career development of Grade 9 students. * Resources for Take Our Kids to Work day can be viewed and downloaded from In addition to the resources included, you can also print, from the noted website, Parent & Workplace Guide sample brochures for promoting Take Our Kids to Work day to parents and employers.www.takeourkidstowork.ca The curriculum material has been written for in-class projects and assignments to support the day and make the experience more meaningful for the students. The health and safety of the students has been emphasized throughout the resource material noting this is a hands-off day. Important note: It is up to the students/parents/employers to arrange the job shadow placements, and students must have their parents/guardian permission to participate; Take Our Kids to Work is a job shadowing hands-off activity, not work experience. Since this is not considered a school-arranged work placement, there is no WCB coverage provided to participating students; Schools should advise parents/guardians who participate that they are responsible for the safety of their children while at the workplace. Thank you for your assistance at this time. I am sure it will be a rewarding experience for everyone involved.
