Sixteen PRSD students compete in North West Skills competition

Tomorrow, (April 24, 2015) sixteen PRSD students are set to compete in the North West Regional Skills competition in Fairview.

The competition hosted by Skills Alberta Canada allows students to show their skills in various trades-based events while participating in hands-on competitions with other schools in the region.

PRSD students from Hines Creek Composite, Worsley Central School, Fairview High School and Peace River High School are competing in the following categories;  Carpentry, TV/Video Production, Jr. Hairstyling, Graphic Design, Baking, Photography, Outdoor Power and Recreation, Fashion Technology, Welding and Cabinet Making.

“Skills Canada Competitions feature the talents of Alberta’s trade and technology students.  Regional Skills Canada Competitions (RSCC) connect students to local post-secondary and industry leaders.  By taking their skills out of the traditional classroom setting, students gain an appreciation for where their skills can take them, and are encouraged to reach for their personal best.” – Alberta Skills Canada

The event kicks-off on Thursday April 23, 2015 with opening ceremonies at 7:00 pm at Grande Prairie Regional College (GPRC) Fairview Campus with competitions beginning on Friday April 24, 2015 at 8:00 am.

Students in the region have the opportunity to advance to the Provincial Skills and World Skills competitions.

PRSD extends best wishes to participating students and thanks GPRC, event sponsors, volunteers, Fairview High School and several PRSD staff volunteering their time to assist in organization and judging of the event. PRSD is a proud bronze sponsor of the North West Regional Skills Competition through a financial donation and also provides school bus transportation services.
