Students from the North Peace Secondary School recently participated in a skills competition, involving a variety of trades.
The students competed in the annual Skills Canada Regional Competition, an event where various schools from around the Peace Region competed in different trades. The competition took place in both Dawson Creek and in Fort St. John at the North Peace Secondary School.
The competition involved multiple categories including a spaghetti bridge building contest for grades 7-9. Regarding the older grades, categories included baking, carpentry, welding, automotives, hairdressing and esthetics.
North Peace Secondary did extremely well in the busy competition, earning gold, silver and bronze in both the hairdressing and automotive competition. Students in the spaghetti bridge contest also placed second and fourth. The school has also not received all of the final results.
North Peace Secondary teacher Brian Campbell said the event was a success and thanked Encana for their sponsorship as well as all the teachers who volunteered to help make the competition a success.
The winning students now have the opportunity to compete in the provincial competition, which will take place in Abbotsford, on April 20.
