As part of L.V. Rogers secondary's goal to increase student engagement in learning and leadership opportunities Mr. Machado and Mr. Francis organized a day for a group of Grade 9 boys to visit with the Nelson Fire Rescue Services.

The boys were put through their paces and learned what it takes to become a firefighter and rescue personnel (both the physical and intellectual capacity).

The boys had a tremendous time during this worthwhile experience.
