Fenelon Township Public School wins Grade 7/8 construction Skills Ontario Qualifier event

On April 10, Grade 7/8 students from 12 elementary schools across the Board travelled to I.E. Weldon Secondary School to compete in the elementary Trillium Lakelands District School Board (TLDSB) Skills Ontario Qualifier event for construction.

In teams of four, students were tasked with preparing, designing, and building a scaled down model home with a set amount of materials, which were then judged on various elements, including the quality of construction, detail of the design plan, craftsmanship, creativity, safety, and teamwork.

The results:

  • First place – Fenelon Township Public School (FTPS)
  • Second place – Huntsville Public School
  • Third place – Bracebridge Public School

The first place team, FTPS, will now move onto the Skills Ontario Provincial Event taking place in Toronto on Monday, May 6, for the second year in a row!

Good luck, team!
