School District 53 brought home 15 medals recently from the Skills Canada Competition at Okanagan College in Kelowna.
“For a small district we did remarkably well,” said Superintendent of Schools Bev Young.
She noted that Southern Okanagan Secondary School (SOSS) brought home a gold in culinary arts and bronze in welding.
Gold and silver medal winners represented the Okanagan region at the provincial competition in Abbotsford on April 5.
Siobhan Detkavich from SOSS won gold at the provincial competition. She will now represent the district, the valley and BC at the Skills Canada national competition in Winnipeg from May 31 to June 3.
Osoyoos and Keremeos also performed well in Kelowna.
