SPHS celebrates Career Week
Saturday, February 13th, 2016
From Monday, February 8th through Friday, February 12th, the San Pedro High School (SPHS) celebrated Career Week. The annual event is held in secondary schools across the country with the objective to inform students of the possible professions within their specific communities. This year, Career Week at SPHS was celebrated under the theme “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams” (Eleanor Roosevelt).
Organized by SPHS Counselor Alexis Guerrero, activities started on Monday, the 8th with a special assembly. Throughout the week, students were treated to presentations from guest speakers within the community. These speakers ranged from members of the hospitality, business, transportation, environmental and public works industries in San Pedro. Each speaker spoke about their field of work and the benefits it has to the economic development of the island. While the focus of Career Week is on the senior students who are about to graduate, emphasis was also placed on second formers who are about to choose their field of studies heading into their junior year in high school.
A class decorating competition was also held where students had to decorate their classrooms to best depict a selected profession. The week culminated on Friday, February 12th with another short assembly. Friday also saw students dressed in a career field of their choice.
SPHS faculty and staff would like to thank everyone that made Career Week a productive and successful event.
