November 11, 2011 - November 10th, 2011 – Aboriginal students at St. Charles College took part in a university and college fair on November 10 in the school gymnasium.  The information sessions allowed students to choose their post secondary options with the help of each school’s Aboriginal Recruitment Officer.  There were twenty-two post secondary institutions from across the province taking part.
 
The event was arranged by the school’s Native Studies department.  Native Studies teacher Jennifer Petahtegoose has been organizing the event for the last three years.  She says students from grades 10 to 12 are being included.
 
Melvin Peltier, a Native Student Recruitment Officer with Sault College says, “Aboriginal students don’t always go to the big university and college information nights.  These students much prefer a small setting and more of a one-on-one experience.”
