Intro to Business - Blue Mountain
CCI's grade 9 & 10 business students participated in a fun and interactive conference with tour operators from Bruce, Grey and Simcoe Counties. The day started with a group think tank session where students shared their ideas on what it takes to attract and retain amazing student talent, worked with in teams creating promo videos for Blue Mountain, and ended with unlimited "Ridge Runner" rides. Tourism operators were so impressed with our students that some were even offered jobs at the end of the day! #cciproud
