Peace Wapiti Public School Division (PWSD) congratulates all students who participated in the Regional Skills Canada Competition (RSCC) on April 23-24 in Fairview, AB, and is pleased to announce that nine students received medals at the event.
To qualify for the 23rd Provincial Skills Canada Competition planned for May 13-14, 2015 at the Edmonton Expo Centre, students competing in the regionalized events at the RSCC in Fairview had to achieve either a first- or second-place finish. PWSD students earned three gold medals in the culinary arts, intermediate hairstyling and junior hairstyling categories; and a silver medal was awarded for cabinet making. Also notable were three bronze medals in the welding, intermediate hairstyling and junior hairstyling categories.
Only those receiving gold medals in the non-regionalized events, including fashion technology and outdoor power and recreation equipment, will move on to the Provincial round of competition. In the non-regionalized events, PWSD students achieved a gold medal in outdoor power and recreation equipment, and a silver medal in fashion technology.
