Future FIT Symposium

On November 14, 2019, over two hundred Grade 7 and 10 female students from the Bishop Reding family of schools participated in the inaugural Future Females in Trades Symposium. The event took place at the Canadian Welding Bureau in Milton, and showcased women from various trades such as Landscaping, Hairstyling, Welding, and the Culinary Arts. Students were able to try out their own skills in hands-on activities such as the Virtual Reality welding simulator, arranging patterns with patio paving stones, and creating stylish hair-dos with mannequin heads.
