Peace Wapiti School Division No. 76 receives six-figure donation from Encana Corporation for traveling trades program

February 20, 2013
Peace Wapiti School Division No. 76 (PWSD), in partnership with Encana Corporation, has developed an exciting traveling trades program scheduled for rollout in September 2013. Thanks to Encana’s generous donation of $119,000, added to the approximately $50,000 in funding from PWSD and additional contributions from community partners, students will have access to five mobile trailers stocked with the necessary tools and equipment to teach elective trades programs in small engine repair, transmissions, robotics, electronics, and cosmetology. At the end of each 10-week program, trailers will be packed up and moved to other schools within the district. Each trailer will move to four schools during the academic year. Courses will be valued at either two or three credits. For more information, read the full press release.
