Prince Rupert students experience Northwest Community College offerings

Grade 10, 11 and 12 students from Charles Hays Secondary School and Pacific Coast School got a glimpse of Northwest Community College.

Grade 10, 11 and 12 students from Charles Hays Secondary School and Pacific Coast School got a glimpse of Northwest Community College (NWCC) programs last week during the Prince Rupert campus’ annual open house.

“It’s an open house for students … to become familiar with our facility and programs and make them realize this is their community college and they’re welcome at anytime,” Ann Rowse, NWCC’s interim regional director for the western region, said.

Students were able to choose from 25 workshops facilitated by faculty and staff on Nov. 26, which included areas such as business administration, the trades, career and college prep, the Freda Diesing School of Northwest Coast Art, student services and university credit.

In the morning, 112 Grade 11 and 12 students from CHSS took part in workshops, with 115 students from Pacific Coast School and Grade 10 at CHSS participating in the afternoon.
