Dressed the part, Triple C School’s pre-kindergarteners took to the stage to present their future careers on March 31.
Professions included police officers, doctors, mechanics, engineers, veterinarians, firefighters and even cowgirls.
Teacher Antoinette Cowan said that throughout the year the pre-kindergarten students are exposed to different themes with the aim of helping them to understand the world in which they live.
This year the students embarked on a Career Day Expo and an exhibition under the theme Community Workers. This activity was done in order to help the students to be aware of the people who help them and to appreciate the fact that each community worker is important.
“Teaching Pre-Kindergarten students about community helpers connects them to their neighborhood and helps them to appreciate the hard work of the people in their community,” said. Ms. Cowan. “They get to dramatize different roles and expand their knowledge as they learn the functions of each worker.
“They learn public speaking skills as they introduce themselves and talk about their jobs. It was indeed a collaborative approach as our super moms and dads came on board and helped us in the preparation process,” she added.
Elementary Vice Principal Jennifer Allen said, “It was great to see the each of the students so excited to share their career choice. This is a great time to expose little ones to all the different careers that work together to form our community. It gives them the opportunity to explore what makes each career special and think how they can make a difference one day when they join the workforce.
“I would like to think that we are planting seeds of inspiration for our future doctors, lawyers, ballerina dancers, actors, and one day we will get the opportunity to see them bloom.”
