 An Adventure with Power Tools

In January 2013, The British Academy introduced a new subject called Elective or Wood Shop as the boys say. Several Form 3 students began to learn basic skills that were part of a practical, problem-solving approach to learning. Their projects included the front wall of pictures, covered with plexi glass which they had to measure, calculate quantities, cut and install, all under the firm guidance of Coach.

They moved on in Term 3 to research, design and build model World War I and II aircrafts, and then retrieved some discarded pallets and created a wonderful rustic bar. The pictures below show their progress.

Their aim is to raise awareness of this issue and how to best combat it firstly in our own school community and then extending it out to Primary Schools.
