The Construction Trades Sampler class, led by Troy Dakiniewich, G.P. Vanier Secondary Construction Teacher, recently accomplished a major build project in Royston under the guidance of master timber framers Randy Churchill and Martin Stutz. On June 6, after working steadily for seven days in May, 15 students of the class of 16 erected a new timber framed barbeque shelter.
The project marks a significant accomplishment. This is the inaugural year for the Construction Trades Sampler. The class is made up entirely of grade 11 students with the exception of two grade 12 students who represent all three district high schools - three students from Mark R. Isfeld, three from Highland Secondary and 10 from Vanier.
