Expectant grads presented their portfolios on May 24, to a mixture of school faculty and community members. Each student had five minutes to present a portfolio that reflected their past, present, and future, with focus given to how they plan to achieve future goals.

Jan Devana, the school’s career clerk, says this was her first time attending the event and she was amazed and shocked at how much the kids really care about these portfolios.

Curtis Girard says he feels his interview went well. He was nervous at first, but once he started talking, he found he had endless things he wanted to share about himself. He plans to attend Camosun and become an electrician.

Mitch Vandersluys says that he spent approximately 20 hours on his portfolio. He also plans to attend Camosun, but is looking towards a career as a civil engineer.
