EMSB holds successful Education and Career Fair
More than 2,000 Secondary V students attended the 22nd annual English Montreal School Board Career Fair on October 19 and 20 at St. Pius X Career Centre in Ahuntsic. Jack Dym of Pipe and Piling Supplies Ltd was the event’s title sponsor.
Several on air personalities from the media were on hand to talk to students about careers in this field and serve as guest emcees: Laurier Macdonald High School grad Pamela Pagano from CityNews Montreal; Vinny and Shannon from Virgin Radio; Sean Henry and Sonali Karnick from CBC Radio; and Kim Sullivan from Global News Montreal.
This marked the first in-person Education and Career Fair since 2019. The previous two editions were presented virtually. On the evening of October 19, the Education and Career Fair was open to the community-at-large. This was an excellent opportunity for parents to attend with their children as they look towards post-secondary education options in a one-stop shopping experience. More than 500 people showed up. Mario Argiropoulos from EMSB Adult Education and Vocational Services is the Education and Career Fair chair. The Student Services and AEVS Departments of the EMSB coordinate this program. The main objective was to provide students with an in-depth exposure to the various educational opportunities available to them. All students will take part in a brief general information session in the St. Pius X auditorium. Students then had the chance to visit the various exhibition/information booths staffed by representatives from English vocational centres, CEGEPS, universities and some private business colleges.
