Halton Skills Competition returns ready to host hundreds of HDSB students at popular event over two days in March

The 32nd annual Halton Skills Competition will take place over the course of two days ‒ March 1, 2024 at West Oak Public School (2071 Fourth Line, Oakville) from 9:30 a.m. – 2 p.m. and March 5, 2024 at the New Street Education Centre (3250 New St., Burlington) from 10:30 a.m. – 4 p.m.

More than 800 Grade 4 – 8 elementary students will showcase their skills in collaborative groups across various disciplines including robotics, animation, construction, mechanical engineering and TV/video production.

“Due to overwhelming interest, this year’s elementary competition will span two days. The competition engages students in solving authentic problems and fosters collaboration-based critical thinking. It also determines qualifying teams to advance to the provincial Skills Ontario Competition scheduled for May 6 in Toronto.”

“Participation in the Halton Skills Competition goes beyond the immediate thrill of the competition and highlights its contribution to student development and helps”  students see future opportunities in the skilled trades, fostering innovative approaches and bridging the gap between theoretical learning and hands-on practical real-world scenarios” said Sarah Patterson, Instructional Program Lead – STEM Assessment and Instruction.
