Students from Hermon PS to visit colleges, universities
September 25, 2019—Hermon Public School students are getting a glimpse into their future through a visit to Fleming College in Peterborough.
This stems from a unique practice that happens at the school every day. Every morning all, students and staff meet in the gym in a circle and talk about why they have come to school. Their answers are always that we are all here to work, learn and grow.
This year, they will be broadening their horizons to look beyond the school borders and community in order to see what might be waiting for students down the road. In support of this, students in Grades 4-6 will be participating in tours of various college and university campuses.
The first visit will be to Fleming College on October 1, touring the entire campus with a special tour of the new Kawartha Trades and Technology Centre where students train in carpentry, electrical, HVAC, plumbing and welding trades.
More visits will be scheduled during the school year.
