Invitation to take part in work experience

Re: letter from Pamela Cameron, “Dog grooming a worthwhile career option for students, Progress, July 5,

I was intrigued by your thorough description of your pet grooming business, and was especially impressed by the extensive range of training and testing you have accumulated to master your craft. The negative experience described in your letter, about the young student who had been mis-informed by her teacher, is regretful. I would only hope that you do not paint all educators with the same brush. I wonder if you are aware that the Chilliwack School District offers an extensive Work Experience program to all high school students, the goal of which is to provide practical learning experiences to assist young people with career decision-making. I would like to invite you (and your colleagues) to sponsor a student for a short period of unpaid Work Experience. You are clearly very passionate about your trade, and that would rub off on a student with a thirst for knowledge. I hope you will consider this an opportunity to provide a lasting and positive influence for our students, while also contributing to the future of your industry. Please feel free to contact the Work Experience Dept. at your convenience. I look forward to our potential partnership.
