Eight Red Deer high school students from Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools will participate virtually in Skills Regionals competition in March and April.
Students who place in top spots at regional competition will continue to the 29th Provincial Skills Canada Competition hosted virtually on April 14 to 23.

St. Joseph High School students include: Nadja Bergstrom, hairstyling – junior; and Matteo Montalto, welding.
“Skills competitions are an excellent way for students to share their gifts, support their future goals and showcase the many hours of work students have dedicated to their craft. Thank you to Skills Canada for their ongoing support of careers and trades,” said Graeme Daniel, St. Joseph principal.
“We are very excited that our students are able to compete virtually in the Skills competition this year. This event is always a culminating experience for our students as they highlight their talents and the skills that have been further enhanced through their Career and Technology Studies (CTS) classes,” said Rose McQuay, Notre Dame principal.
