SD83 Students Learn Plenty at OK College Kelowna

38 SAS-Sullivan and Jackson students had a taste of Kelowna’s Okanagan College when they were able to do some hands-on learning on Tuesday.

Besides getting a campus tour, the students were able to select a certain department to spend some time in to learn more about the career in question. These areas included the trades, health & social development, the therapy assistant program, science and tech and the aviation program. The Kelowna campus of the College only highlighted programs that exist just in that Okanagan city.

Southern Interior Flight Centre’s Chief Flight Instructor Mark Heinzlreiter talks SAS-Sullivan Grade 11 students Braxton Gervais (left) and Hailey Hunt (right) how to work through take off in their flight simulator machine. The machine is used by each OC aviation student a minimum of 200 hours.
