Skills Canada Alberta (SCA) “promotes excellence in trade and technology careers through skills competitions and hands-on programs for students” (  Students from Crowsnest Consolidated High School, F.P. Walshe School, Livingstone School, Matthew Halton High School, and Willow Creek Composite High School develop many of their skills through Career & Technology Studies (CTS) courses at school. 

LRSD offers excellent learning spaces and high-quality instruction with many CTS teachers being journeymen/ persons in their trades. The training students receive in high school combined with the learning and confidence of the Skills Competition helps prepare them for their future beyond graduation.

Best of luck to these ten students moving on to the provincial competition!
