Epic day for tasting the kootenay life style at Selkirk College
We had more than 400 Kootenay-Boundary students ranging from grades 10-12, all of which were high school students from various locations. This was our annual Experience Selkirk Day which took place on Thursday, April 4, 2013 where students were invited to come out and get a real taste of kootenay life and all we had to offer. This event was a hands-on experience that made choosing Selkirk College easy.
We know that our future students are coming here for fun, taking their learning to a new dimension as well engaging in student life activities at all our various campus locations. Our Athletics and Recreation Coordinator, Kim Verigin along with the Saints Hockey Team gave the students a warm welcome with an afternoon of fun skill-testing competitions after a delicious barbeque lunch on the lawns of the Castlegar Campus.
The best way to introduce future students to Selkirk is to provide them with a real experience on campus,” said Selkirk College Educational Recruitment Specialist, Amy Kinakin. "The day provides great experiential learning opportunities that engage the students and help them learn more about what they want to pursue in their careers.”
