Women in Trades Event A Huge Success!

Women in Trades Event A Huge Success!

On May 24, 2018 female students from across North Bay and District gathered at the West Ferris Arena for a day of interactive learning, focused on promoting women in the trades. The event hosted students from all four school boards who learned from SJSH staff and community partners about a multitude of trades including plumbing, welding, the culinary sector, hairstyling and aesthetics and much more. Special thank you to the event organizers, volunteers, students and staff for making the event such a success!
