Widdifield students earn a paycheckMonday, January 14, 2013 by: Kate AdamsStory and photo submitted
The Pathways program at Widdifield Secondary School and the Business Department have teamed up to provide students with practical learning experiences that pay.
Students from the Pathways program worked at the North Bay Fur Harvester's Auction as porters on Tuesday January 8th.
The students were required to show furs from our region to buyers from around the world.
The day allowed students to see how a global economy works while getting real life experience.
Students also benefited from a paycheque at the end of the day.
"The Pathways program at Widdifield is always trying to provide students with real life experiences out of the classroom,” Said Tyler Kidd, business teacher at Widdifield.
“We're very happy that we were able to create this partnership with the North Bay Fur Auction. This was a business relationship made exclusively with Widdifield students and we hope to foster it in the future."
“A special thanks to Trevor Poulin from Broken Arrow who help make the day a success. It's dedication to students that makes student achievement possible.”
