Mind the Gap

A Collaboration between Thompson Rivers University and School District 73

Hands on experience in trades for girls of SD73

Traditionally trades has been a male-dominated industry, but over the years more and more women are stepping into skilled trades.

However, according to a recent study by Statistics Canada, women might form about half the population of Canada, but still only make up 14 per cent of trades apprentices.

A new program run through School District 73 is working to change that.

Culinary Collaboration

A collaboration between TRU and Sahali Secondary School supported by a Mind the Gap grant was recently highlighted by Kamloops’ CFJC News.

The project is called “Raising Cultural Awareness through Food Preparation”. It was a collaboration between Holly Adkin’s foods class from Sahali Secondary School and Kim Johnstone from TRU’s Culinary Arts department. The aim of the project was to bring together school district students with TRU students to provide exposure to international cuisine and culinary techniques, demonstrated by experts.
