CONGRATULATIONS TO DELVIEW'S RESPECTED PROGRAM
For the past three years, Delview students have been showing their leadership in spreading awareness and taking action in our community as part of the Red Cross' RespectEd program. They have been providing strategies and advice to younger students in the District. The following blog post highlights some of their hard work and how they got to share their work with others around the province: Quite the Week

A Wave to the Trades
On one of the first sunny days of February, Delview students had an opportunity to participate in a guided tour of the DEAS works yard - the basin near the Massey Tunnel where all the maintenance is done on the BC Ferries fleet. Students donned hard hats, safety glasses and jackets and descended into the belly of Northern Expedition to investigate the machinery and massive engines that power this huge ferry. They also visited the brains of the ship - the bridge deck and control room and watched work being done on readying the all-important fleet lifeboats for service.
Over twenty different trades are involved in refitting and refurbishing the ships that serve the West Coast so a visit to DEAS was an opportune chance for students to see various trades in action. Our management guides delivered an informative talk to our students about prospects, options and career paths in the trades. BC Ferries staff were not only impressed by the interest shown by our students in the various aspects of a ship “overhaul” but complimented our group on their respectful and mature behaviour while on a worksite that requires safety awareness.
To encourage participation in the trades the school organizes a number of “Trades Exploration Tours”. In the past month students have visited post-secondary schools to investigate a variety of programs - carpentry, plumbing, electrical, welding, auto repair, pastry and cook training. Besides BC Ferries, a number of students attended a first-class tour of the Polygon Construction site at Lakeside and talked to trades people working there.
We close out our efforts with a parent information evening scheduled for Tuesday March 4th at 7:00 in the school library. Instructors in the various school programs and our district coordinator will be available to answer questions about the Ace-It trades programs offered by the district and explain how to arrange Secondary School Apprenticeship work placements. We encourage any parents or students interested in finding out about more district trades training to attend this very informative evening.
