District 16 Skilled Trades and Technology students had an opportunity on Monday November 1st to take serious consideration of the importance of protecting their eyes. A graphic presentation at the James M. Hill High School auditorium by Clarissa Harris-LeBreton of the Canadian National Institute of the Blind gave them an eyeful, so to speak, of what can happen through careless or inappropriate safety precautions in the work place. The presentation was made to coincide with the Canada-wide Skilled Trade and Technology Week which runs from November 1st to 7th. A second presentation during the morning by Luc Morin, Executive Director of Skills Canada NB, invited students to prepare for the up coming provincial Skills Canada Competition in Oromocto which could lead to participation in the World Skills Competition in London England in the fall of 2011 by way of the Skills Canada National Competition next summer in Quebec City.
