About 600 Grade 7 and 8 students from St. Clair Catholic schools in Chatham-Kent and Sarnia-Lambton had the opportunity to visit both St. Clair College and Lambton College earlier this month.
"This tremendous partnership with our colleges gives students opportunities to explore hands-on learning experiences, which introduce them to a variety of college destinations offered at our local colleges," says Scott Johnson, Superintendent of Education.
After the events, St. Clair Catholic's intermediate pathways teachers follow-up with classroom-based activities, which help students to consider additional pathways options.
The events are organized each year by the Board's Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program Lead Warren Seton, in partnership with the colleges.
