SkillsBC Regional Competition

2016 Central Okanagan School District Student competitors

Well Done!

Every competitor should be proud of their accomplishments on Friday.  It is not everyone who can rise above the pressure and stress of a competition, learn to focus on the task at hand and let their skills and abilities still shine through.  According to the judges you all did just that.  The marks in each competition apparently were very close!

For a complete list of competition medalists please click here.  This year recorded the highest number of competitors to date.

A tremendous applause to the school district’s career program advisors, shop and technology education teachers - your encouragement and guidance allows students to believe in themselves, their skills and abilities.  We know they will go on to be successful in life and hopefully our next generation of Tradespeople!  

A special thanks to our spokesperson/emcee – Mike Roberts.  You brought the event to another level - your ease with people and wonderful sense of humour was well received and much appreciated.  Thanks so much Mike!!
