Now is the time to get Grade 11 and 12 students thinking about post-secondary education.
“They need information earlier rather than later. We don’t want to wait until the end of Grade 12 to start thinking about these things,” said Kerrie Binetruy, guidance counsellor at Peacock Collegiate. “It’s very important to start early.”
Guidance counsellors from both school divisions in Moose Jaw banded together again to hold a post-secondary education day. Binetruy and Corrie Lewis are the guidance counsellors at Peacock Collegiate, Tammy Saylor is the counsellor at Central Collegiate, Christa LaPointe is the counsellor at Vanier Collegiate and Brett Young is the councillor for rural Prairie South schools.
“The counsellors in Moose Jaw get together and we sponsor this event so that the kids can go under one roof and learn about as many post-secondary opportunities as possible,” said Binetruy.
“We have a variety of post-secondary schools here, Saskatchewan and Alberta mostly.”
