SUDBURY – While Cambrian College students are enjoying a break during Reading Week, local high school students were hard at work on Cambrian’s campus this week.
Students from the Rainbow District School Board were taking part in two events promoting skilled trades and technology.
Trades and Tech Day was held in collaboration with Skills Ontario, and welcomed First Nation, Métis, and Inuit youth in Grades 9 to 12 to meet, network, and share a meal with community members who have already chosen a career in the skilled trades and technologies.
The second event was the Rainbow Board’s Skills Competition, which saw more than 100 students competing in 18 different competitions around the college. The winners will compete at Skills Ontario in Toronto as part of Team Sudbury.
“It’s always great to have high school students on our campus, and to introduce them to the skilled trades and what career options they can pursue,” says Renee Scott, Cambrian College’s Director of Student Success and Recruitment. “All week, we’ve been showing these young men and women the various trades taught here at Cambrian and they’ve even been able to meet the professionals who have spent their careers working in high-paying jobs that are in demand across Sudbury and, in fact, the entire country.”
The Skills Ontario competition is being held May 4-6 in Toronto.
