On Friday, 26 January, Wheatley held its third annual Career Fair. As part of the district’s goal to expose our students to some of the possible careers available to them beyond Wheatley and college, the Career Fair brought in a wide range of professionals to speak to our students. With the support of our community, nineteen different professionals spent time at Wheatley sharing information about their careers, their backgrounds and the interests that led them to pursue their current occupation.
The Career Fair presenters were assigned an individual classroom for their presentations. All 11th and 12th graders selected two different presenters to visit during the fair. The event proved to be quite informative for the students, and the presenters appreciated the interested demonstrated by our students!
The increased exposure to more career opportunities has been a district goal. The Career Fair was coordinated by Natalia McMillan!
