Gwynne School Welcomes Activity Center

Students and staff at Gwynne School are blessed to work with a hardworking and enterprising parent group. Over the last two years the Gwynne Parent Council has canvassed the surrounding area looking for support to re-establish the community rink area.

Monetary donations and sweat equity have enabled the Gwynne School Parents to raise a new structure which will soon be developed into a year round activity center.  Activities such as skating, basketball and volleyball will soon keep students active and engaged for many years to come.  Generous donations and offers of labor have brought the community together to help Gwynne students stay active. Gwynne School and the Parents Association would like to thank the following businesses and organizations for their generous support:

Work Bee Volunteers

Anonymous Donations

County of Wetaskiwin

Camrose Kinsmen Club

RWR  Trucking

Grade 8-9 Job Shadow

Our Grade 8/9 Job Shadowing Day will be held on Friday, April 22, 2016.

Grade 8/9 students will spend the day at work, Job Shadowing a parent, relative, friend or volunteer host. Where possible, parents invite their own child to spend the day on the job. If you are unable to host your own child, there are still ways for your child to participate. Here are some suggestions: Ask a parent of another grade 8/9 student who is participating if your child could join them for the day, Contact local businesses or schools.

Students are responsible to find a worksite. They will need to have confirmation of a placement by April 15, 2016. Please let Miss Loov know where you will be going. Students will receive a Job Shadowing booklet which they are required to take to the worksite and complete. Job Shadowing booklets are due no later than Friday, April 29, 2016 and should be handed in to Miss Loov. The booklets will be marked and will be part of their Social Studies assessment. Students must arrive on time and dress appropriately for the worksite. Students are there as OBSERVERS ONLY.

Our school jurisdiction has insurance to cover students in an observation capacity. Ensure students are under adult supervision at all times. Plan activities that allow students to observe, interact with employees and ask questions. Communicate the importance of health and safety in the workplace. Identify any specific cautions or information students will need to know ahead of time. Have clear structure, limits and expectations. The host for the day should be able to spend time discussing the Job Shadowing experience and dedicate part of a workday to a student and be available to that student for a period of time. Students will be conducting an interview as part of the assignment.

Thank you for your participation in making our Job Shadowing Day a positive and meaningful experience for our students. Contact me if you have any concerns. loovm@wrps.ab.ca

Thank You,

Michelle Loov
