Newman will be conducting a Skills Challenge Day which will feature a wide range of skills challenges including WorldSkills Competitions. We invite all staff and students to engage in their chosen Skills Challenge activity and be inspired by past students and where their skills have taken them. Successful WorldSkills competitors will be eligible to qualify for WorldSkills Regional Competitions conducted in November.

Aim
