Some high school graduates know they want to pursue higher education but are not sure which direction to go. Other graduates are more fortunate – they know, and probably have known for years, exactly what career or line of work they want and how to go about achieving their dream. University was always my goal and I thought perhaps I would follow in my mum’s footsteps and become a teacher, however, I knew that was not my passion. I wasn’t sure what was, and wanted so badly to discover what it could be.

There’s nothing like family traditions and for many, building a gingerbread house together is a special part of the holiday season.

“We’ve been coming here every year for 12 years to do this with all our grandchildren,” said Leslie Polson. “They look forward to it, they start talking about it about a month before, ‘gingerbread, gingerbread, gingerbread.'”

Her four-year-old grandson, Archie, agreed, "It’s so fun!”

It’s incredibly inspiring when a child grows to recognize what they are truly capable of and starts to believe in their potential.

CST’s partnership with Career Trek in Manitoba aims to help children and families along that journey.

Career Trek is a not-for-profit organization which helps young people discover the importance of education and career development, by offering hands-on experience with various jobs.

Toddler with Big Eyes

The last bit of my former, pre-parenthood life will be driving away today. With a second child on the way my husband and I are taking the plunge into minivan territory. Ugh! We’ve both cringed at the thought of a minivan ever since we were able to drive, vowing never to be “those” parents.
