Surrey students returned from the annual Lower Fraser Valley Regional Skills Competition with a haul of 44 medals – including bronze for two elementary students.
Evan McMartin and Colton Hammersley of Laronde Elementary claimed bronze in the Sumo Robot competition, a category where gold and silver went to Princess Margaret Secondary students Aaron Cronwell and Brant Jerace respectively.
Around 130 Surrey Schools students took part in the competition hosted at Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s trades campus in Cloverdale and in several secondary schools. The competition celebrates and rewards students for excellence in their mastery of trade and technology skills that are relevant to employers’ needs.
