If a student misses time, they are expected to access their work on this site. If there is limited access from home or the location in which a student will be spending time, students will need to use access when they are back at school in Lunch Labs, after school or on breaks, or access resources available through services like the Whitehorse Public Library, Skookum Jim Friendship Centre's After School Tutoring Program, the Kwanlin Dün Kenädän Ku House of Learning, and/or other available community resources.
Weeks 1 & 2 - Monday, April 8th to Thursday, April 19th
Although this is a Careers course, the focus will be on building skills in goal setting, self-reflection, being flexible, making choices, mental and emotional well-being and resilience. We do some work around connecting interests to potential career 'clusters' but the emphasis is on accurate self-assessment and understanding that there are a range of options available that may suit any given set of interests and skills.
