NGDHS Students move on to SKLZ Ontario finals in Carpentry


Last week, Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) students showed off their carpentry and woodworking skills at the Eastern Ontario SKLZ competition, a continuation of the SKLZ competition held last month in Cornwall.

And a team from North Grenville District High School is moving on to the Skills Ontario competition in Toronto this May. Sam Kirk and Nathan Rogers took silver in the Team of Two Carpentry category, qualifying them for the Ontario finals at the Eastern Ontario SKLZ level.

The event, held March 20 at the Carpenter’s Union 93 in Kanata, was in collaboration with the UCDSB, Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario, and UBC Built, presented by DeWalt. Approximately 110 participants from both school boards across the region showcased their skills in four different woodworking trades. With representation from 11 out of 22 secondary schools, UCDSB had about 49 students compete at the event.

Congratulations to Sam and Nathan, and best wishes for the Ontario final.
