School may be out of session for the time being, but that hasn’t stopped two local teachers from standing out for a job well done.

Rob Wall and James Halushka of North Battleford Comprehensive High School (NBCHS) were recently recognized for their work and contributions while serving as members of the Skills Canada National Technical Committee.

“The work of volunteers is essential to Skills Canada’s development in achieving its mission of actively promoting careers in the skilled trades and technologies to youth in Canada,” the organization said in a statement.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Skills Canada was not able to host its National Competition in Vancouver this year. Despite the cancelation of festivities however, the organization still felt it was important to acknowledge the “hard work and dedication of the individuals who play a critical role in the project development process for these competitions.”



Here is how the schedule is shaping up for Halifax May 2019.


2019 National Competition Schedule

Please note you may refer to the scope under 2019 national competitions but until our provincial team, Kevin and Dave, have time to adapt this toour provincial level, use the national scope as a temporary guideline.
