Visiting Georgian College

This week, Pine River students visited Georgian College in Barrie. Students met various Georgian College staff including Gary Harris from the Tool & Die program, Greg Merrall from the Jewelry and Metals departments, and Randi McDermott from the Paramedic and Personal Support Worker  programs.  This week’s outing is part of Pine River’s programming that equips students with the necessary skills and information to plan out their post-secondary education.  In addition to this recent college tour, students have the opportunity to meet with College and University reps, take interest profiles and career suitability questionnaires, learn about apprenticeships and entrepreneurial programs, participate in resume writing workshops, as well as participate in volunteer work and job shadowing.
