This is the second year of our canoe building course. Under the direction of John Hendren (recently retired from his role as Architectural Supervisor with our School Board), and our construction teacher Dave Lester, our students spend every Wednesday during Semester 2 building two canoes from kits. The students earn a specialized grade 11 construction credit and learn the art of building a canoe. As we did last year we are building two different canoe models which we will sell to private buyers to recoup the costs of the canoe kits, tools and materials. ~~The two canoes from last year’s project were purchased by
cottagers on Stoney Lake. ~~

What are Dual Credits?
Dual Credit programs are courses that are offered in partnership with
Fleming College. Students enrolled in a dual credit are earning a credit
that counts towards their high school diploma as well as a college credit.
What are the benefits?
Students are not only earning both high school and college credits but
they are also getting an opportunity to gain the skills necessary to ease
the transition to post secondary programs. Students who take part in this
program may also have a lighter course load at college since they have
already started to accumulate credits. Dual credit students have a head
start on learning and training for their future careers.
Future Courses Available in 2014-2015 Year:
