Students at Devereaux Elementary and Pouce Coupe Elementary finally faced off for the Go Cart Derby Challenge. The students started out the year researching, designing, constructing templates, revising their prototype, and finally building their ultimate go cart. Each school had experts come into their classes to talk about and help with specific parts of the project. Laura Craig, SD59 Elementary Career Coordintor and Brad Booker, District Vice-Principal of Career Programs also played a key role in the project by working with the students to link all their learning back to discovering various trades and allowing the students the opportunity to get hands on experience.
Funding was provided by Industry Training Authority (ITA) YES 2 IT program. ITA also created a video to showcase youth experiencing the trades. Check out the video on YouTube.
SD59 would also like to thank all the local sponsors for helping with the project.
The Board of Education of School District No.59 approved a three year school calendar at the March board meeting. Having a three year calendar allows parents, staff, and organizations to plan future events around designated breaks and non-instructional days. However, the board does have the authority to revise and submit a new calendar to the Ministry if completed by March 31st prior to the commencement of each new school year. The Board advises anyone looking at planning activities throughout the three years to consult the current calendar for that time period after the March 31st date.
