In Baking – Clarissa R. was GOLDEN – producing perfect cream puffs and other delectable baked goods
In Cooking – Catherine W. edged out her fellow Hamber competitors and Ace It students from across the district in a tight race and gained a Bronze medal
In Fashion Technology – Karen C. won Bronze, Yoyo T. won Silver and Kimberly B. WON GOLD achieving 96% – setting a new record of achievement in Fashion Technology since Hamber students have been participating in this event at the regional, provincial and national levels in the last 20 years.
The GOLD medal winners will advance to the Provincial Skills Competitions 2016 on April 13, 2016 at the Tradex, in Abbotsford. The Provincial Gold medal winners will then be advancing to the Nationals in Moncton, NB in June.
