It was School District 60’s pleasure to welcome students from across the Peace region and beyond, including special guests who travelled from School District 78 (Fraser-Cascade). Students and education staff from Agassiz, Hope, Chetwynd, Dawson Creek and Fort St. John convened to take part in the truly unique educational field trip called the Northern Opportunities Energy Week Tour.
It was a very active week; students climbed up a wind energy tower and welded at Northern Lights College. They walked around oil and gas drilling well sites. They learned about the BC Hydro Site C dam project. They toured Tervita, Shell, Progress Energy, and Encana facilities. They ate lunch at Encana Sunset Prairie Lodge and had a taste of what life at camp is really like. On top of it all, students got to try their hands at nine holes of golf at Lone Wolf Golf Club, while learning about the lives and careers of men and women who volunteered their time and their voices to mentor the kids about their own potential career paths.
Many, many thanks go out to all who participated in the week- from the drivers who transported us safely, to the hands who prepared our meals, to the workers who enlightened us with information- we thank you.
