Central Okanagan Public School is offering a program segway to a career in resource management in the forestry sector. The Rutland Senior Secondary (RSS) forestry class embraces a hands-on learning experience open to all Grade 11 and 12 students in the school district. It begins in the second semester of the school year for Grade 11 and extends into the Grade 12 fall semester. Participating students will spend more of their time learning a variety of forestry related career job skills throughout the Central Okanagan.
