Our community is rich with knowledge expertise and experience and HRSB students are eager to learn. Our Community Based Learning team works tirelessly to build relationships with organizations who host our students for learning experiences. We are incredibly fortunate to have thousands of community partners who welcome our students into their organizations each year and that number continues to grow. Partners who host our students will often tell us that they learn as much during the work placement from the student as the student learns from the organization Jane Caudle is with the Cherubini Group of Companies and Carol Logan is with the Prince George and Cambridge Suites Hotels. Watch this video to hear what the partnership with HRSB means to their companies. We are also grateful to the organizations who partner with us in other ways including career fairs and skills competitions. Recently Skills NS Canada hosted students in junior and senior high schools at a tech shop to provide students in a number of hands-on workshops. Students from all of our junior and senior highs were invited to compete in or attend the annual Skills Competition to cheer competitors on participate in Try-a-Trade and learn more about pathways they may be considering or know very little about. For a few years we have seen growth in the number of students competing in Skills NS competitions this year almost 50 students competed. Six of those students won gold medals and earned the right to represent NS at the national competition in Saskatoon in May. There was a broad representation of skills and abilities in the HRSB group students competed in TV Video Production Baking Job Search Prepared Speech and Workplace Safety.

Each year Techsploration empowers Grade 9 female students from a number of our junior high schools by partnering students with role models who work in exciting and challenging science trades and technology careers. These students spend time in the role models place of work research requirements and pathways for that field of work and then participate in a two-day event at Saint Marys University where they are able to showcase their learning and reflect upon their connection with their role models. Some of the role models that students have had the opportunity to follow include machinists video game designers researchers electricians survey technicians aircraft mechanics and forensic scientists. My daughter has blossomed with the Co-op experience. She is no longer wondering if this is a field for her based on hearsay - she now knows this is a field for her based on hands-on in-person hours of experience. - Parent My student dove right in. She could be a chef if she chooses but during her culinary Co-op she was taken with the accounting aspect of the position and is now exploring aspects of that career in a subsequent Co-op. Partner
