ARICHAT — A ca­reer fair for Grades 7-12 stu­dents at École Beau­port this morn­ing will help guide where their in­ter­ests lie, said vice-prin­ci­pal Mar­garet Landry.

Sev­eral lo­cal pro­fes­sion­als and trades­peo­ple will rep­re­sent their re­spec­tive pro­fes­sion at kiosks. Stu­dents will have 10 min­utes to learn as much as they can about each oc­cu­pa­tion be­fore a bell moves them along to the next kiosk.

“It kind of plants the seed of in­ter­est,” Landry said.

“Hope­fully what they’ll hear from some of the pre­sen­ters will give them some idea as to what their tal­ents are and what their tal­ents might be.”

She said the stu­dents should be aware of the num­ber of ca­reers that are avail­able and the ones most in de­mand.

With a Pri­mary to Grade 12 stu­dent pop­u­la­tion of 253, Landry said stu­dents will hear from a doc­tor, den­tist, and Rich­mond MLA Michel Sam­son, who’s trained as a lawyer.
