OCSB Career Week 2023 at a School Near You

Career Week is underway in all Ottawa Catholic Schools. Students as young as Kindergarten and as senior as Grade 12 will explore the many careers they may one day call their own.

Exploring the World of Work – One Day at a Time

The week will showcase different occupations through age-appropriate activities designed to open students’ minds to a world of possibilities. Each day of the week focuses on a super skill that will help students thrive in the work world:

  • Monday – It All Adds Up: Math is a Part of Every Career (Numeracy)
  • Tuesday – Construct Your Future: What’s a Skilled Trade? (Oral Communication)
  • Wednesday – A Day in the Life of a Worker (Digital Skills)
  • Thursday – Entrepreneurship (Writing Skills)
  • Friday – Which Hat Will You Wear? (What career interests you?) (Working with others)

Our consultants have developed resources based on these themes and skills for every grade level.
