​On February 20, Grade 9 students from St. Theresa Catholic Secondary School attended sessions at Sir James Whitney and Loyalist College to learn about careers in the trades.

Grade 9 males attended Sir James Whitney for the morning to learn about careers in fields such as culinary, automotive, construction and more. 

As part of a Skills Ontario initiative, Grade 9 females attended "Women in Trades" at Loyalist College.  These students had the opportunity to gain first hand experience of careers in the trades.
