The month of February and March have been very active in Family Studies and Tech. Ed.
Grade seven has been learning to do hand stitching by making a sewing needle holder and a key holder.
Grade eight has been learning about nutrition and food, along with kitchen management duties.
We have looked at foodborne illnesses, safety in the kitchen and use of equipment in the food lab when baking.
Skill Trades students have worked on a cut away model of a shed, learning how to lay out studs, rafters, framing in windows and doors, boarding in, siding and insulation, along with how to shingle a roof, for those who have attended class.
Attendance is very important in these hands-on areas for students to get their credits needed to pass.
