Fifteen students from Correlieu Secondary School (CSS) had an opportunity to gain hands-on experience at West Fraser’s Quesnel sawmill on Thursday (Feb. 21) thanks to a partnership between the school, West Fraser and the B.C. Council of Forest Industries (COFI).

The students spent the day rotating between one of five workstations, where they learned about welding, millwright work, electrical, quality control and saw filing.
