Learning about the workaday world at the RSS Career Fair

Students at Revelstoke Secondary School enjoyed a day-long Career Fair Thursday that introduced them to the real world of work in a variety of fields.

“The idea behind this career fair is to expose students to people who work in various fields and to try to give them a bit of a hands-on experience,” said teacher Lori Milmine. “It should be an exciting and informative day for students.”

It was certainly different, as you can see from these photos from some of the sessions:
