WINNIPEG — The Manitoba government is funding more than $250,000 in new equipment for technical vocational courses at Murdoch Mackay Collegiate.

The school’s metal fabrication program will see $175,000 to purchase three mills, two lathes, two power MIG machines and one welding fabrication table.

“We’re really proud of our vocational programs and today’s announcement means our students in metals, fashion, graphic arts and electronics at Murdoch MacKay will be able to develop their skills on state-of-the-art equipment and be well prepared for post-secondary training and jobs in the industry,” said Colleen Carswell, chair, board of trustees, River East School Division.

Other equipment upgrades at the school include a new dye submission printer for the fashion design and technology program, a new laser and 3D printer for the graphic arts program, and a new solar-energy system and solar-learning kits for the electronics program.
