Conseil scolaire catholique du Nouvel-Ontario (CSCNO) secondary schools stood tall at the Regional Cardboard Boat Race competition, taking home three medals. Some 30 Northern Ontario teams from various communities took part in the challenge.
Wawa’s École secondaire Saint-Joseph team made up of Démily Thibodeau-Bello, Patrick Chevrier, Aiden Laing and Kalev Trudeau placed first at the November 22 North-Western Competition in Thunder based on their ability to build a quick and sturdy cardboard boat. Their vessel navigated 25 metres in 17.2 seconds and carried a load of 280 kilograms.
