As Lindsay Thurber is a career-focussed school, students in grade 11 will be bussed to Red Deer College on April 26th to participate in Career Expo. Grade 11 students will attend for the morning. Students in grades 9, 10, and 12 are also welcome to pick up a field trip form from the Career Centre so that they too can participate in this terrific hands-on career event! Field trip forms will be available in April.
The Career Expo for Central Alberta is a one day event where professionals in various trades, occupations and professions will demonstrate and explain a variety of careers and provide attendees with the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in that career. Over 200 different careers will be showcased, including Trades and Health careers. Attendees will participate in tours, visual presentations, and hands-on demonstrations and activities that will provide them with a broad understanding about various career opportunities. Youth will match their interests and skills with careers that they not even have known existed before the event!
