Cedar bench

This beauty was created as a self-directed project by E.A. and J.L.L. in Trades 10! Crafted out of cedar, this bench is heading out to the Cumberland forest, on a mountain bike trail being built by E.A. himself. Excellent work, and can’t wait to see it on future rides!

Trades Picnic Tables

Our first adult-sized picnic table (donated to a local Early Child Education centre here in the Comox Valley), as well as our Spring 2019 tables donated to various daycares in our community. Excellent work, everyone!

Community Project – Daycare Picnic Tables!

Our Fall 2018 Trades 9/10 students created these amazing kids’ picnic tables. All of them were donated to local daycares as a Community-Building project here in the Comox Valley. It’s so rewarding for our students to see their work being used by others in our community, especially when we have the wee ones come by our shops to pick them up! Great work, everyone.

stone setting projects

Cheryl Jacobs, a local professional jeweller and post-secondary instructor, came in and shared some incredible skills with our students in Spring 2018. Featured here are several stone-setting projects done by Senior Jewelry students – beautiful work!

Guest Jeweller project

In Spring 2018, we had a professional jeweller and college instructor, Cheryl Jacobs, come into our class to talk about local advanced education and entrepreneurship in jewelry-making (See the “Other Awesome Resources” section on this website to view her work). Cheryl shared new skills with us, and worked with students in both Junior and Senior Jewelry. Pictured here are a variety of cuffs designed by students – these projects incorporated leather work, riveting, and texturing and tempering metal.
