Assumption’s very own, Ian Corbett, competes at the Canada Skills Competition!

Iain, who runs his own summer business, had a feeling he “placed top ten” and decided he would make the drive into Toronto just to see where he placed. As the announcer moved into the top 3 and Iain had not heard his name yet, he was a bit dejected but thought maybe he hadn’t done as well as he suspected. That all changed when he saw his name flashed across the screen as the Ontario Skills Competition Gold Medal winner for Carpentry. 

Having successfully competed at the Halton Skills Competition and won Gold, Iain Corbett moved on to compete at the Ontario Skills competition at the Toronto Congress Centre on May 7th. 

As a result of winning gold at Ontario Skills, Iain was afforded the opportunity to compete in the Skills Canada national championship. The event took place in Halifax on May 28-29th. Iain travelled with competitors from across Ontario to compete against the best high school aged carpenters in Canada. Iain performed incredibly well placing 9th. More importantly, he gained valuable experience – first flight, new friends, future connections and skill development- and got the chance to see a beautiful Canadian city. 

It should be noted, that the Skills Canada competition is an exceptional event. Competing students are celebrated like Olympic athletes and 7500 students from across Nova Scotia witnessed the event. It is remarkable to see so many talented students exhibit their God-given talents. As well, it is a powerful recognition of the importance of all post-secondary pathways. 

Iain was an exceptional representative of his family, Assumption CSS, the Student Success Department and the HCDSB as a whole. We are all extremely proud of his accomplishments. 

Congratulations Iain!
