Saying Goodbye in June
Every year, you begin to say goodbye to people, places and things in school. It may be your last year in high school, or even elementary school. One thing is for sure; it is hard to say goodbye. If you are moving on to post-secondary education, you might be moving far away from friends and family. This is tough and it will take you some time to adjust. On the bright side, you have the summer to mentally prepare yourself for those adjustments. You can make your summer as busy as you can with work, volunteering and friends, but don’t forget to take some time out to meditate on your future endeavours. Do you remember the old line from the movie Field of Dreams, “If you build it, they will come”? It is still a great quote when you relate it to building a positive future for yourself that will equate to a healthy and fulfilled life. Quite simply, if you work hard, you will reap the benefits- even if you fall on your face a few times in between. Saying goodbye will be hard at first, but you have a lot to look forward to that will only make your life richer with experience!
For our last issue before summer break, we have quite a few Op-Ed pieces that talk about experiences in Co-op Education. Hopefully, after reading these pieces, you will have some insight on what a co-op course can do for your education and future job/career choices.
We also have articles on: STEM organizations, Trade career profiles, why it is important to attend events concerning disability rights, how Trade unions work, monthly scholarships and more.
A special thanks to all our new student writers that contributed this year; you have ultimately made the site richer with great content. Enjoy your summer and we cannot wait to read what you have in store for us in the new school year!
Be safe, always,
Erin Lynne Kelly
