This week we welcome Laura from our twin school in Sanitz, Germany. Laura will be staying with the Brus family for three months. We hope she enjoys her experience here in Canada. Welcome to Stettler, Laura. Also, returning last week from his exchange to our twin school in Sanitz was Taylor Olsen. Taylor stayed in Germany for five weeks, spending one week travelling with his host family and the other four weeks attending classes with his host partner Tim. He said he had a great time.
Mr. Goodrich’s Grade 11 and 12 building-construction classes took a trip out to Tanis Longshore’s Custom Cabinet and Furniture shop. She has located her shop on her family property just north of Byemoor. Tanis graduated from William E. Hay back in 2004. Most of her apprenticeship years were spent in Red Deer where she attained her journeyman ticket in cabinetmaking. It was an excellent experience for the students to see someone much like themselves, who graduated from Wm. E. Hay, now operating her own successful business. The tour was very much enjoyed and appreciated by all of the students.
The students’ union will be holding a St. Patrick’s Day dress-up competition on Wednesday, March 17. Students are encouraged to put on their best ‘greens’ and compete for a great prize!
Also on March 17, a representative from Careers – The Next Generation will be at Wm. E. Hay to provide an informative session to our Grade 10 and 11 students on the Registered Apprenticeship Program. This program allows students to gain high school credits while also working towards their first year of their journeyman.
Spring break at Wm. E. Hay begins on March 22 and continues to March 26. Classes will start again on March 29. On behalf of the staff and students at Wm. E. Hay, we wish everyone safe travels during their spring break.
That’s all we’ve got for you this week.
