Collège de l'Île Students Share Their Experience with Over 250 Immersion Students
The first round of presentations took place last Friday, when the students visited Charlottetown Rural and Colonel Gray Schools in Charlottetown and spoke to 5 classes for a total of over 125 students. The visits will continue this Wednesday, April 17, at Three Oaks in Summerside and Westisle School in Prince County, where they will reach over 130 students.
The students talked about college life and about the various programs offered at the Collège, such as Administrative Assistant, Bookkeeping, Resident Care Worker, Early Childhood Education, Youth Worker, and the Licensed Practical Nursing program, as well as the new Welding program.
For Donna Arsenault-Rogers, a student in the Personal Care Attendant program, it was an honor to be able to present the Collège and her own experience to immersion students: "The Collège has an excellent student-teacher ratio and for those who want to study in French or to improve their French close to home the Collège is an excellent option. The Collège has so much to offer, especially in the way it guides all of its students and ensures their success, that it is easy for us to encourage students to think of the Collège as an option for their postsecondary education."
"Who better than our own students to explain to the students the experience of undertaking a training program at Collège de l'Île? They're our best ambassadors," said the President of Collège de l'Île, Mr. Donald Des Roches. "The Collège offers a wide range of practical programs in French that meet the needs of the labour market and constitute an excellent avenue for anyone who wants to study in French or to improve their French-language skills," he said in conclusion.
Collège de l'Île wants to take the opportunity to thank all of the schools for welcoming its students so warmly.
