The WorkBC "Find Your Fit" tour is an interactive student-based event taking place at Qualicum Beach Elementary School on Jan 30, 2018 from 8:30am – 2:50pm for students and from 3:15pm - 7:00pm for students and parents. This program is designed for a student audience from grades 5 to 12 and their parents.
Students and Teachers Session (8:30 am - 2:50 pm): Open to students in grade 6 and grade 7. Transportation will be provided by District 69 bus.
Parents and Community Members Session: (3:15 pm - 7:00 pm): Open to all students in grades 5 through to grade 12, parents, and community members.
The event allows students to jump right in and try the skills they'll need for different careers in demand across BC. Interactive activity stations - including welding, carpentry, accounting, and more - will help students apply real life experiences to their career planning. Students will also be able to connect with WorkBC's labour market information, tools and services. Parents are welcome to attend the event as they look for ways to educate and support their children in their career exploration.
"Find Your Fit" is part of the B.C. provincial government's "Skills for Jobs Blueprint" commitment to re-engineer education and deliver the skilled workforce that B.C.'s growing economy needs.
Drop in and explore the program and discover how to 'Find Your Fit' for a career!

Please click on the link above to read more about the use of technology and respecting the privacy and safety of our students.
School District 69 values the use of technology as an integral part of teaching and learning. Handheld devices have become part of our daily routines and as such, provide us access to a wide variety of tools, including photographing our students doing all sorts of activities in school settings.
It has been noticed that photos of some of our students have recently appeared on social media. While we understand that parents taking and sharing photos during school-sanctioned activities are doing so with good intentions; what people may not realize is that we have students who have media restrictions in place and parents have indicated they do not want their child's photo to appear publicly.
In order to respect the privacy of our students, and to ensure their safety, we ask that you do NOT download, copy, or distribute any pictures or other personal information through social media that contains images of students and/or student work other than your own child's.
Our students and staff will be learning and practicing some common hul'q'umi'num' words and phrases from now until the end of the year, focusing on one each month. Hul'q'umi'num' is the traditional language of the Coast Salish People. Lawrence Mitchell from Snaw Naw As (Nanooose First Nation) and Jesse Recalma from Qualicum First Nation will be helping us to initiate the program by visiting each classroom to share songs and stories and to speak to the vital importance of language to culture.
All proceeds will go to the Annual Grade 4 / 5 Field Trip to Tribune Bay Outdoor Education Centre.
