Extremely young Engineers, Psychologists, and Motocrossers were at Greentree School and were all under the age of 12.

It was Career Day on Wednesday and the Students dressed up for the future career they were dreaming about.

One Student Aura Bizdel dressed up like a psychologist, and the reason being is because of the influence of someone she loves.

"A psychologist, because my dad is a psychologist, so I thought it would be fun to be like him," Bizdel said.

Some of these career ideas these Students dressed up for came from parents being so influential in their lives.

Influenced by her dad, who works in the oil and gas industry was Riley Martin. She explained what she wanted to be.

"An Engineer. My mom told me to wear a plaid shirt, and I had the idea to wear the hard hat," said Martin.

Thomas Laffin from the Drumheller Football Association was the guest speaker for the Career Day Assembly and encouraged the Students that they can be anything they wanted to be, but it takes hard work and lots of practice.

A surprising career idea came from Tayver Plante, who enjoys dirt biking in the Valley. He chose a career that he would love to do on a daily basis.

"I'd choose professional motocrosser," Plante said. When asked what his favorite thing would be about having a career in Motocross he explained, "Probably just having fun. Well, if you win the Supercross, I guess you get a million dollars. I'd probably spend it on something I need instead of something I don't need."

The assembly was wrapped up with entertainment from students who had been learning to play the ukelele.  They were influenced by one of
their teachers who thought it would be a cool instrument to learn for himself. He enjoyed it so much, he taught the students who wanted to learn.

These students approached their teacher, and asked if they could enter the Music Festival and were granted high marks by Adjudicators after their performance at the Festival.

All of the Students have dared to dream big and the teachers at Greentree School are doing a fantastic job encouraging them to reach those career goals.
