November 3 is Grade 9 Job Shadowing Day Virtual Event at TOH!

Give your grade 9 student a chance to see what it’s like to work in health care.

Grade 9 Job Shadow Day (or Take Your Kid to Work Day) at TOH gives Grade 9 students a chance to visit exciting parts of the Hospital by participating in a tour or by shadowing either a parent or other TOH employee. Students obtain a realistic view of our workplace and begin to understand the challenges and opportunities within health care.

This year, due to COVID-19 restrictions, we will be unable to host any students in the Hospital, so instead we are inviting all students to join us for our first ever virtual event! To participate, students will need to complete the registration form. Event information, including links, will be sent out to the students by no later than November 1.

Goals for Grade 9 Job Shadowing Day

  • To show students how one person’s job contributes to the whole organization.​
  • To link classroom knowledge to workplace experiences.
  • To invest in the workplace of the future by supporting career education today. ​
  • To promote continuous, life-long learning.
  • To help students explore career options in a hospital.
