Circuit Training

Grade 11 student Kyle Lucas was one of several students in this group learning residential electrical work as part of a co-operative course with Lakeland College. The sessions lasted all school day long from Tuesday to Friday at Provost Public School. Instructor Scott Pratt from Lakeland College (behind, left) said the residential wiring course consisted of 80 percent hands-on learning coupled with theory and a written test. There were five PPS students along with four from Chauvin’s Dr. Folkins School and two from Hughenden Public School. This was the first off-campus course for Lakeland College—and offered three credits for the Career Technology Studies (CTS) students who were successful. Pratt was happy with the training saying it “worked out great”. ©Provost News Photo.

Chauvin Archers Win Medals at Alberta Winter Games
Six archers from the Buckwood Archers in Chauvin set out in the fall to compete at the Alberta Winter Games and two of them returned with medals from the Spruce Grove, Alberta competition.

Travis Rendle, Tristan Hanson, Meagan Adam, Remi Klinke and Tallin Cemulini first went to Lac La Biche to try out for Zone 7. Rendle, Hanson and Adam all succeeded in making the team. Nash Rowe was in Red Deer trying out for Zone 4 and he made the team there.

The athletes dedicated several hours weekly with coaches Corey Skinner and Travis Skinner in Chauvin at Cutting Edge Hunting Supply preparing for the games. “They practiced long and hard to try to achieve their goals” said Travis Skinner. Once the archers made the Winter Games teams they were required to travel also to Lac La Biche and Lloydminster to practice with Zone 7 coach Rene Schaub of Lac La Biche.

The archers left Thursday February 9 from Lloydminster and arrived at Spruce Grove that afternoon to register. The archers had to be up at 5 a.m. each morning to catch the buses to and from the venues to eat and get back to the gym to shoot. The days were “long and hard on all the athletes and coaches” according to Travis Skinner.

Adam brought home a gold medal in the cadet recurve female competition in the individual round, without a loss.

Rendle and Adam also brought home first place in the recurve cadet team event where they dominated the competition.
Rendle, Rowe and Hanson were knocked out in the shoot offs.

The exams were written at the end of last month.

Peat, who turned 18 on February 27 said in an interview that the exams were “not overly” difficult for her, but after spending an hour on each one—spent another hour going over her answers two more times.
