Congratulations! On behalf of Skills Ontario, we are pleased to inform you that the submission from your school, FOXBORO PUBLIC SCHOOL for the Skills Ontario Paper Glider Competition 2020-21 has won the SILVER medal at the regional level of the competition from Eastern Region.

The team will now be advancing to the Championship round and compete against medalists from all the regions at elementary level. In this round, the submissions will be graded on how much weight their plane can hold. We are now tasking the students to test their plane’s strength by adding coins to their glider as weights. They are free to use their existing plane OR make a new one.
More details on this announcement will be communicated closer to the announcement date.
