The St. Michael Home Building team just won the Ontario Skills Competition. Students were given 12 pages of detailed drawings and had two days, 16 hours to construct a garden shed complete with electrical and plumbing. There were 35 teams competing from all across Ontario.
For the past two years St. Michael has been very fortunate to win two silver medals in this event and this year winning the gold metal. Two of the students are working in co-op placement, one at Pol Construction, the other with Mark Van Hurk Custom Framing. The two other students will be looking for co-op placements next September in the building trades.
