Two Niagara Catholic students travelled to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, last week, to compete in the Skills Canada 2015 competition. Both Alex Powell, a Grade 12 student at Saint Michael Catholic High School in Niagara Falls, and Alex DiPaola, a Grade 11 student at Notre Dame College School in Welland, achieved national medals.
Alex Powell won Gold in the Electronics event. His outstanding performance bested students from across Canada in the competition. Alex DiPaola won a Bronze Medal in Mechanical CADD (Computer Assisted Design and Drafting).
Director of Education John Crocco congratulated both students for their stellar performance at the national level.
“Congratulations to both Alex and Alex for their exceptional results at the Skills Canada 2015 competition in Saskatoon,” said Mr. Crocco. “As a community, we were extremely proud to have two students win gold medals in the 2015 Skills Ontario competition, making them part of Team Ontario at the national competition. To have each student achieve a medal from Skills Canada 2015 is the pinnacle to school, Board, Provincial and National competitions. Their success speaks to the level of knowledge, support and commitment of our teachers and students to academic excellence throughout Niagara Catholic.”Good News
