On the Job at The Village of St. Clair
- Western SS students gaining work experience -

Western Secondary School students are planning a Christmas coffee and cookie social with the residents of The Villages of St. Clair on Tuesday, December 19th from 10:30 – 11:30 a.m.
 
Throughout the semester the students with special needs have been participating in an experiential learning co-op program at the long-term care home 2 days each week. They have been rotating through a series of job responsibilities in the hair salon, the general store, the library and as maintenance and recreational assistants.

The purpose of the program is to build the students' transferable skills and self-confidence. The result is a very positive response from residents and staff.
