Lake Cowichan School sent out a notice to the parents of Grade 9 students last week, reminding them of Take Your Kid to Work Day.

This national event, Wednesday, Nov. 4 is a day on which Grade 9 students are encouraged to spend a day at a worksite with one of their parents.

The idea is to offer students the opportunity to see what the workplace is like, appreciate the expectations, understand their parents better and understand the importance of planning a career path.

Anyone with more questions should see Mrs. Holland, in the LCS Career Centre,  between       9 a.m. and 1 p.m. on school days.
