Amanda and Andrew Futcher did an excellent job representing GDHS in the Skills Canada Video Challenge. The Video Challenges offer Ontario students the opportunity to test their communication and video production skills in a lively, real-world environment. In teams of two, students film and edit videos that promote the Cardboard Boat Races. All footage is shot live at the Cardboard Boat Races. Teams then have one month to edit their videos. Videos from across the province are judged all together.
I am pleased to tell you that Amanda and Andrew placed ninth in the competition, which is a great achievement considering that they were competing with submissions from all across the province. Amanda and Andrew both show great promise in the field of Communications Technology. Andrew will be attending College this fall, pursuing a career in Computer Technologies, a field for which he is obviously well prepared!
