The start of second semester sees grades 7-9 moving from Tech Ed to family studies. Grade 7 will be sewing, grade 8 will be learning food and nutrition and grade 9 will be working with child studies. I will also be teaching a high school credit this semester: skilled trades 10.
Can’t wait to see everyone in February.
We welcome Mike Sack as our sub T.A. for the next little while as Jon-Jon is out on a mission. Mike comes with a wealth of knowledge that can be passed along to our students. Welcome Mike!
Our students are learning drafting techniques that will help them draft plans, read plans, and make a project from a plan.
Grade 8s have started a Halloween candle holder, the grade 9s a cell phone holder, Design 11 are creating a cutting board made from exotic woods and local hardwoods. Grade 7s are creating a cardboard glider using recycling and drafting skills to transfer the design onto the cardboard before cutting it out with the hand saw.
Tech Ed. Is a hands on course and attendance is very important for our students to achieve good grades.
It's a new year and 2020-2021 will be a new experience in the school system for staff and students.
Tech Ed. students must wear masks, tools and desks/benches must be wiped down at the end of each class, and wash our hands often.
The 7s, 8s, and 9s will start with drafting skills in September and October, moving to working with wood in November, December and January.
Senior High students are in Design 11 will learn about the Elements and Principles of Design by focusing on specific tasks and skills, gaining a deeper understanding of the process and creative solutions to design problems.
Students must attend class each day to refine their knowledge and skills in reading, writing, viewing, speaking, listening and organization of ideas of Design 11. Design 11 is a hands-on semester where attendance is very important.
Hi Technology 10.
I sure do miss the students in Tech 10, I hope you are all keeping safe at home.
There were some projects that were lined up for the remaining of the year but just maybe we can accomplish some of them when we get back to school.
Keep safe everyone stay home, wash your hands and keep your social distancing happening. Everyone is doing a great job.
Hello: From the Tech Ed class, we are currently working on a project for our school.
The Tech Education class will be busy as soon as the weather warms up and we can start our outdoor projects.
The students have various projects to be working on in the community.
I look forward to passing on some pictures of the finished products.
I would like to give a big shout out to the students that participated and completed the NAIG podiums... they looked fabulous.
On behalf of Mr. Walter Palethorpe, I would like to let everyone know that he will not be teaching this second semester. Ms. Joanne Julian will be teaching his Technical Education courses with the assistance of Educational Assistant, Jon Michael, and Ms. Mary Davies will be teaching Family Studies for Grades 7/8/9. If you have any questions or concerns, please direct them to either of these ladies or our Admininstration.

December has arrived all too fast over the last four months, students from Grades 7 to 12 have gained skills in Drafting and wood work. Learning is a life long process where we become proficient in some areas and have skills in many.
The following pictures show some of the work they did to ensure that they learned safety skills and how to use the tools needed to produce a product.
Happy holidays to all!! A special thank you to our E.A. Jon-Jon who brings and shares a wealth of skill and knowledge in our shop and to our students.
