Rich Griffin, EZ Rock announcer interviewed Michel Grandmont, Special Assignment Teacher, OYAP/COOP Coordinator for the Sudbury Catholic District School Board and Sharon Murdoch, Executive Director, Training and Adjustment Board, (Sudbury and Manitoulin) “live on-air” at the Fall 2003 Home Show held at the Sudbury Arena recently. The Sudbury Catholic Board via the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (OYAP) participated in Sudbury's recent Home Show along with students from St. Charles College by helping to construct a 6’X 8’ ice hut (on skis) complete with insulation, vinyl siding and a wood stove. OYAP is a partnership Program involving the Sudbury Catholic and Rainbow District School Boards, le conseil scolaire catholique du Nouvel-Ontario, le conseil scolaire du district du Grand-Nord, Cambrian College, College Boreal and the Sudbury-Manitoulin Training and Advisory Board. OYAP students and staff were on site at the Home Show to display the ice hut to the public and to promote their program to the community. The ice hut was raffled off free off charge at the end of three-day home show.
