Hundreds of grade seven students from across Grande Prairie are spending the day at the Regional College.
The third annual “Grade Seven Day” is meant to give the students a glimpse of some of the programs post-secondary institutions offer, and encourage them to look into the possibility of attending.
GPRC Vice President of Academics and Research says the annual event is more about promoting the idea of post-secondary education, rather than a specific school.
The event was originally organized by the Regional High School Summit in the hopes of inspiring grade sevens to be more focused when they head to high school.
They believe grade seven is the perfect age to start talking post-secondary.
