Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 30, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Variety Is Not Lacking By .MAHY SIKORA, STUDENT Catholic Central High School The business world, today de- mands a large number of high- ly-educated students. This pro- duces great pressure on the high schools to provide some sort of. ..educa-. Eon in the field of business. In order to pro- vide this educa- tion two things are needed; _ complicated and expensive ma- chines and highly experienced teachers. In my opinion, Catholic Cen- tral High School has given the students a tremendous variety of subjects from which to choose, and a great opportuni- ty to enter the business world that awaits them. The business curriculum in this school con- lists of business mathematics and English, afrtx practice, typing, shorthand, business machines and These subjects should help the student to prepare for the in- dividual job in any business throughout Lethbridge. They provide the basic education and experience that is needed. The company who employs these students may then pro- vide further training. As we know, the subjects cannot function alone; business machines are a necessity. Although, I must agree Cath- olic Central has not purchased the most expensive and extra- vagant machines, the ones we have are sufficient enough to provide the general knowledge that we need for the business world. The teachers also play an Important role in the education of the individual. Through them we learn what goes on and what our duties would consist of in the life which we plan to lead. With the help of our ma- chines, subjects, and teachers you may be sure that when you are hiring a Catholic Central business graduate, you are get- ting a highly experienced and qualified person for the job. A Letter To Editor Dear Editor: Since you ask for the readers' opinion on the School-In edition, I wouW like to submit mine. The door to door survey miss- ed me. Otherwise your percen- tage of those who read and en- joy School-In would have gone up. I think it is most interesting, especially since my children aire past school age. This is my only contact with what happens in today's schools, and it is im- proving the image of schools and education. 3 find the topics very practi- cal and informative. I also en- Joy the poetry. Thank you for bringing your talents under the of the public. 4 Grandmother. Shorthand Laboratory In Willing Students Benefit The Most By ALAN HARROLD WCHS Student The business wing of Churchill High School has an adequate number, of business machines, for a school this size, so that a stu- dent wifl have 3 enough experi- erce with the machines when i he finishes high school, to en- able Win to fit 's into the busi- Bess world. The facilities for learning nere are very good, for a student who is looking forward to a business career. The teaching staff foe the business wing is a little start- handed at the moment, but what teachers there are, are wifling to spend extra time with'the-students, if they are willing. The new way of keeping at- tendance this year gives a busi- ness student a good view of what machines are used in modern'business. Each student has a computer card for each class subject, which is hung an the door when a student is ab- sent. are picked up in the 'morning and afternoon, and taken to the office. They are separated into grades, marked lor absentees, aind sorted by a card sorter back into classes. This year some classes were too large for the teachers to handle well, which made it harder for a teacher to give as .much individual instruction as -some students needed, are not enough courses for a business student to choose from at WCHS, and to get credits, many students are taking some classes they don't like or want. Next year the school is en- tering a new leaming plan, which involves learning at a student's own rate. This win be better for the student, in that, the faster students, and those willing to learn and work on their own will do so, aind will not be held back by those un- willing to work. The teachers will them have more time to work with the students who are slower. Broad Business Course Considered A Wise Move should By LORI MAXWELL LCI Student What do I need to know? What do I want to do? What consider? One ques- tion affects the other. Do I want to go to university? Not every .student is cut out to be a unive r s i t y g r a d uate. A deal can be said for mind broadcn- ing' and for prepared for any- but one must also con- sider what the situation would be if, after you have completed a matriculation course, you de- cided not to attend university. What training do you have for a job? Should students restruc- ture their thinking and plan to go into-the business education program? Here one can choose "being Operation At Collegiate Capabilities Of Student Are .Determined In Tests By CATHERINE LEINWEBER WCIIS Student In grade nine, when we chose what course we wanted -to take, I .took secretarial because I was really in. terested :in it. In grade 11, one of my courses was shorthand. Even though I waaited to be goipd in this course .and I tried :hard, I just did' not get airywliorc! and ended up with one ot the lowest marks in the class. I thought I could do better if I took Shorthand 20 but I lost inteirest in it. There is now a test'given to the incoming classes to see if they are capable of writing shorthand. It-is too bad it came out too late for me because I would have found out that I had no aptitude for that sub- ject. After dropping out of short- hand, I also dropped out of the secretarial course. So in grade 12 I picked the .classes I want- ed. I chose them because I though c they would be very in- teresting and I wanted to learn them. I am glad I picked the class- es I preferred and wias not forced to take a-certain course. I think the subjects I have taken will enable me to get a good job. I think there is too much repetition -in the classes. I am sorry I took business machines now, because I have to do it over again in Office .Practice 30: That is my biggest com- plaint about the whole business course. AH of the machines and equipment in the business area are excellent and help to give a knowledge of the different kkDdis of office machinery that I might have to use while work- ing in am office. a particular field such as sec- retarial, accounting, data pro- cessing merchandising, and be trained by fully qualified teachers to go to work. Students should plan to take a braod business course in high school so they can enter into one of many fields offered. It is very wise for matriculation students to take a few business courses in high school, such as typing ar.d shorthand, so they can get part-time jobs at the university, and at the same time get an education. Since the LCI is such a large high school, can offer all of the above courses men- tioned. With the addition of the new wo will be one of the best-equipped schools in the province for business educa- tion.
