November 27, 2018

Students floating in cardboard boat

For over 20 years, Skills Ontario has been hosting Cardboard Boat Races across Ontario, testing student’s ability to build a floating structure that will outperform all others in speed and weight challenges.

On November 27, students from Holy Cross Catholic Secondary School and Nicholson Catholic College had the opportunity to complete in the cardboard boat races at Sir James Whitney School in Belleville.

Congratulations to three Nicholson Catholic College teams for advancing to the provincial championships held in Waterloo in March.
