High School Students Explore Selkirk Option
Nearly 500 Grade 10, 11 and 12 students from schools around West Kootenay converged on Selkirk College this month for Experience Selkirk Day. Students attended workshops based on various programs offered at Selkirk to experience a day in the life of a college student. They visited Nelson’s Tenth Street and Silver King campuses and the Kootenay School of the Arts, as well as the Castlegar campus.
