Take Your Kids to Work

Filed under: Students — Mr. White @ 3:13 am

Today was “Take Your Kids to Work Day” both locally and across the Nation.  One young lady won the chance to spend the day with Prime Minister Harper.  She even got to sit in his chair.  I have talked to a few Grade 9 students about spending the day with their parents and the comments were very positive.

What I would like to know from students is: 1. What is the value of spending the day with your parents?  2. What were the highlights of working with your parents? Please leave a comment.

  1. I think that take your kids to work dayis a great thing to have in the school. It shows you what your parents have to put up with everyday and how hard their job can be sometimes. It also gives out a choice about your future since you know what that job is like. Its a great way to connect with your parents, knowing that they come home after a long day of sometimes hard work.

  2. I think that Take Your Kids to Work day is a great thing for any school to have. It shows the kids what there parents/guardian have to do everyday. It also gives them an example of what working is like and shows them how hard working really is. It opens the kids eyes to see how hard there parents really work and helps them connect with what there parents do.

  3. I think TYKWD is a great idea for this school. It gives student an opportunity to get out into the real world and learn about different jobs. I had a lot of fun on my own Take Your Kid to Work Day and I think we should continue to do it in the future.

  6. Last year, I stayed home and helped my Mom with daycare, and then later I took apart, and then re assembled a computer with my Dad. I learned quite a lot about computers that way, and I learned about how whiny kids can be.. Wow. It’s kinda ridiculous. I quite enjoy this program, and it helps kids to choose what they may want to do in their life.

  7. I think that Take Your Kids to Work Day is a great opportunity for students to experience what it’s really like for their parents when they have to go to work. It makes the kids really appreciate what their parents do for them. Last year, when I participated in Take Your Kids to Work Day, it was a valuable experience that made me think of what I wanted to do for a job when I get out of high school. (BH)

  9. I remember last years TYKTW day and I am glad to see this program is continuing. I feel my day spent at Faders Music in Brandon was well spent teaching me the inner workings of a musical instrument store. I learned a lot about music equipment and had fun trying the guitars gauging quality and ensuring a proper set-up and no broken strings. It gave me insight to one of the many jobs I may wish to pursue and gave me some inside knowledge on what’s good, what’s great, and what’s not quite worth it. I am glad to see this program is continuing and applaud the school for allowing students to participate in this fun and insightful program. -Charles McFoofy Thunderbottom III (D.M.)

  10. Last year when i went to Take Your Kid to Work Day I went with my dad. The value of spending the day with my parents was seeing what they do and how hard they work for us. The highlights of working with my parent was so that I could spend the day with my dad and see if that’s what I wanted to do when I grow up. It was a great time.

  11. When I went to take your kid to work day I went to work in the Minto Community market with Gordon Wooley. It was great, I got to learn how to run a cash register and how he runs the post office. It is a great experience for everyone who goes to work with a parent or an adult.

  12. Last year I went with my dad for take your kid to work day. I think the value of spending the day with your parents is that it gives you the chance to experience what a day in their shoes feels like. You get to understand the important asspects of their job and why it’s important to them. The part I enjoyed most about working with my parents is that I got to spend the day with my dad and I got to understand his job better to see if that’s what I wanted to do in the future.
