Every Grade Eight student from Shuswap Middle School will descend upon Okanagan College in Salmon Arm on May 3rd.
Over two-hundred SMS students will spend the morning at the Shuswap campus learning more about what the campus has to offer.
SMS Principal Scott Anderson is excited about the upcoming event. “Visiting the OC Salmon Arm Campus is a wonderful chance for our students to see the post secondary learning opportunities that are available right here in their home town!” said Anderson. Students will rotate through different stations while at the College. These stations include a tour of the facility, a talk with a college advisor on various programs, view scientific and other interactive demonstrations and participate in some games as well.
The college will be busy during that week as on Friday, May 5th, secondary students throughout the District will be invited to “Experience OC” by attending lectures given by College professors in their chosen fields. Grade 10-12 students interested in the opportunity are to talk with the Career Coordinator at their school or they can contact George Richard at 778-824-1188 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
