The Student Success Department is excited to announce that Bobby Watt will be sharing his passion for apprenticeship with staff and students at Fenelon Falls Secondary School on Thursday, October 1, 2015.

bobby1Bobby Watt founded RJW-Gem Campbell Stonemasons Inc. and imparted his individual values and beliefs to create a truly unique company. Born and trained in Scotland, he apprenticed to John Thomson on the Isle of Arran off Scotland’s west coast. Bobby arrived in Canada in 1975 with the youthful ambition of a man who has twenty-one summers at his back and the tradition, history and training of six thousand years of masonry in his head, hands and heart. Mr. Watt is currently the President and General Manager of RJW-Gem Campbell Stonemasons Inc.

The following video, The Apprentice, is a part of a fantastic video series which includes information about apprenticeships and women in the trades. It also features a Huntsville High School graduate who is now apprenticing and working on the West Block of the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa.
