Career day

Monday, February 25, 2008

In an effort to get the kids thinking about their future, Holy Cross School held Career Day on Monday February 25th at 1 pm.

12 people, local and from abroad came out to teach the kids about the work world. The speakers covered a wide range… banking, tourism, hospitality, Ambergris Caye Apprenticeship program, agriculture, Police, medical, health and wellness.

The kids leaned why it is important to do what they love, what skills they will need to focus on in order to advance in the career world such as math science language, spelling to name a few. They also leaned what schooling is required for each field and how they can earn an income within that field and also have the potential to travel and relocate in different places. Some jobs such as Atlantic Bank positions are open to learning new skills be promoted from within - other jobs such as yoga instructor showed the value of being flexible in body and mind within the work world.

Big thanks to our speakers - Cheri, Lydia, Chris from Casa Picasso, Danny, Emily, Deacon Tess, Atlantic Bank – Ellis Sanchez, Vito Herrera, Jody Martinez, Melissa Cuellar, San pedro Police dept - Dwayne McCulloch Cpl 900, Randy Lyons pc# 225
