Prairie South Visits SCE

Prairie South Schools would like to thank South Country Equipment (SCE) for providing 33 students from Chaplin, Gravelbourg, Mortlach, Mossbank, Peacock Collegiate, Avonlea, Craik and Assiniboia the opportunity to spend the day with mentors at SCE Emerald Park location.  On November 17, students were provided the chance to learn about various aspects of the agricultural industry first-hand.  It was an exciting day for mentors and students to learn and collaborate together.  Benefits for students who attended Think Ag Career Exploration event were:

  •   Connect and problem solve with industry experts
  •   Gain hands-on experience using cutting-edge technology
  •   Explore different areas of employment in agriculture
  •   Have exposure to possible work opportunities through high school credits and industry programming

            “(My son) was very excited to share his experience with us over supper. The 14 year old who can sums up his day at school in a word “good” could not stop talking about each segment of the program … in detail! He soaked up the presentations on sales, parts, service and agronomy.  As a parent, I appreciate PSSD providing this opportunity, in cooperation with SCE, for our students to explore potential careers.”
