Grade seven students in Huron-Perth Catholic schools have finished their Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program technology days.
OYAP Project Coordinator Tim Martens says over 400 students gathered in Mitchell over three days earlier this week to learn about different trades.
Martens says everything from construction to home economics was covered in the three days, with the elementary students learning from high school students.
He says technology classes used to be normal in elementary schools, but since they can't do that anymore, this is a good opportunity for the kids to expand their education.
Martens says the feedback from students was great and they all seemed to enjoy themselves regardless of what projects they were working on.
He says the three days were a huge success and they'll definitely be doing it again next year.
