|Mrs. Jacobson with graduates of the Babysitting Course (larger format)|
For the last few years, and as a courtesy to students, IHMS has offered an intensive 1 day babysitting course for any interested junior-high students. This year, the course was held on Friday, October 24, a day when school was not in session because of a provincial-wide inservice (SAGE).
|The babysitting course was taught by Mrs. Cathy Jacobson, one of the parents at our school. Mrs. Jacobson is a certified instructor for the course, and has graciously offered her services to the school for the past few years. Typically, most grade 7 students register for the course.|
Students paid a small fee to cover the cost of an accompanying workbook, and were presented with certificates after passing a written test at the conclusion of the course. Mrs. Jacobson presented her proud graduates with their Babysitters Certificates on Thursday, October 30!
