Bring it on! Hands-on style

NSS shop students show off creative projects

Shop students “bring it on” at Nakusp Secondary School!   Some very well crafted and creative projects have been produced this year in addition to having two students participate in the Year One Carpentry ACE-It program. With many graduates having successfully continued into the trades, this is not just a song and dance but is a recognition of the importance of these programs.

Interfor has made a very generous donation of lumber this year which gave the support to run a robust Carpentry program. They played a key role in providing the two ACE-It Carpentry students a great experience. Downie Timber out of Revelstoke donated a lift of fresh cut lumber, as well, which was also very much appreciated. Our Metals and Automotive programs are greatly enhanced by the goodwill of Crescent Bay Construction and Nakusp Napa for working closely as our suppliers. They help access and acquisition the best products for the best prices.

A local skilled tradesperson, Kate Tupper, volunteered some of her time to give metalwork students exposure and insight into industrial welding. A local contractor, Joseph Hughes, generously volunteered some of his time to take our Carpentry and Joinery 11/12 students on a tour of the renovation of the old Fire Hall. These experiences prove invaluable to students.


Since our students are our future, we would like to thank all the people who support our shop programs.  Thank-you!
