As part of national Take Our Kids to Work Day, local students spent November 1 in the shoes of an RCMP employee.
The initiative supports career exploration and opens students’ eyes to different career choices at a young age.
The day’s schedule included demonstrations from a variety of departments, lunch in the mess hall and the chance to interact with the men and women of the Force. It showcased the job diversity that the RCMP can provide, from working with police dogs to robots.
Launched in 1994, Take Our Kids to Work Day happens annually on the first Wednesday of November. Students from a variety of schools – across the Halifax Regional Municipality and surrounding areas – have participated.
