At Nile Academy Plunkett we have a “Guest Speaker Series” Program. These guest speakers come to Nile from all walks of life but they have one thing in common and that is that they are well-renowned professionals in their own fields.
Past guest speakers have included personalities from Canadian TV broadcasting, radio, print journalism and medical professionals.
We hope to continue this program as it gives our students a perspective into the “real world|” after they graduate school.
