Eighty high school students gain "Insights" through enrichment at Trent

PCVS students study at Champlain College: December 10

Eighty PCVS students are visiting Trent University on December 10 to explore a myriad of subjects as part of Insights - a day-long academic enrichment program, hosted by Champlain College.
Students from all grades and academic levels will attend a series of workshops on topics ranging from "Human Forensic DNA Profiling" and "Environmental History" to "Songwriting." Other subject areas include astronomy, globalization, underground art and media, and art therapy.
President Bonnie Patterson will welcome the students at 9 a.m., and Cameron Douglas, program director of WUOMI, the Sierra Leone Global Education Partnership Project, will deliver the keynote address. Students will attend morning sessions from 9:30 - 11:30 a.m. and afternoon sessions from 1:30 - 3:30 p.m., unless they have chosen one of the all-day sessions. Students will also have the opportunity to tour the campus.
Trent professors, local professionals, and practising artists and specialists will lead the workshops. This is the second annual Insights event at Champlain College, though it is a more than 10-year tradition for PCVS.
