Electives

One afternoon each week we have electives.  Students have a choice between; woodwork, cooking, fishing, and t-shirt design.  Each elective runs for 2 hours, once a week for 4 weeks.   This gives the students an opportunity to form relationships with their peers and staff outside of their own classroom.  As students are able to choose what they want to do, we find student engagement is high for a substantial amount of time.  Electives are also a great opportunity for the students to learn valuable life skills. We believe all our students have special gifts to offer and it is during electives these skills can really develop and flourish, whether they have a future in the hospitality or trade industry, they now have options.  Their picture of themselves starts to change with an immense feeling of pride when they can show off what they have created.
