A Trip to the Education and Career Fair
On December 7th, students at Canada Royal Arts High School spent a day at the Education and Career Fair. The Education and Career Fair is an intimate conference that exhibits many popular schools, education programs, and careers for students after High School. Furthermore, it showcases new and emerging programs. Also, it provides students opportunities outside of post-secondary Education.
We met up with our students at Waterfront Station and took quick walk to Canada Place. Students were encouraged to visit as many booths as they could and learn about their post-secondary opportunities. Canada Place is well-known for it’s sails structure located at the top. Also, it is popular as a docking station for large cruises and boats.
In order to abide by the new curriculum, the students had an additional assignment to complete after the Fair. The new BC curriculum encourages students to reflect, self-assess, and think about their own learning. After the Fair was done, each student had a reflection question and self-assessment rubric to complete. As a result, the reflection assignment asked students to rate their own experience at the Fair. They were asked to think about what they’ve learned, and also wonder about what other information they need.
