Trades are in Demand

Tradesmen and women support all major construction and industry in our modern world – from suburban homes to hydro-electric dams. Every building, road and vehicle you see around you was built, made and maintained by a tradesperson. And yet many parents don’t want their kids to pursue a career in the trades. They think it’s a step down.

But times have changed - in today’s economy if you’re a skilled tradesperson you have a better chance of finding a job and making good money than many college or university graduates. Tradespeople work in increasingly high-tech worlds with GPS and lasers on building sites, computers and analytics in auto repair and robots and 3-D printers on the shop floor. Delta School District recognizes this changing environment and supports the trades with programs in apprenticeship and accelerated training that help students find satisfying and well-paid careers.

Recently a number of our very own Delview graduates in the trades were honoured with Ace-It completion certificates having met both the district training and the ITA requirements for their particular trade. The ceremony was held at the Delta School District office with many parents and other family members in attendance.  Congratulations to all our successful Delview Grads for 2013 and 2014!!

And just a short reminder that applications for next year’s Ace-It program are due on March 12th 2015. Interested students should contact to Mr. Prideaux in the Career Centre as workshops on the application process begin first week in March.

What is SafeTeen?
The safeteen program is an acclaimed assertiveness and violence prevention model that has been a resource for school communities in BC for over 3 decades. Our highly trained team of facilitators offer skills for choosing healthy relationships, bullying and harassment prevention strategies and skills to de-escalate verbal, physical and emotional violence.
Most importantly the program cultivates empowerment, self-agency, critical thinking and self-esteem in children and youth. This work can have a profound effect on curbing all forms of violence including self-harming practices. The unique safeteen model provides children, educators and parents with a language that can be integrated into school and family culture. In the hallways, in the playground and at the dinner table; safeteen cultivates peaceful community.

WE DID IT!

Thanks For Giving 2014

Take one small high school with a huge heart, give us a goal of collecting over 10,000 cans in one night and we’ll double that. On our 22nd annual Thanks For Giving food drive, 500 student, staff, parent and community volunteers at Delview Secondary managed to shatter our previous record by collecting 22,009 non-perishable food items.

This year’s Thanks For Giving was filled with immense happiness, pride, and gratitude to all those who helped to make the night possible- though within all that joy are the mixed feelings of having to leave this event behind. As I stood on the stage after we revealed the final total - at that point it was around 20,000- I couldn’t help but think that this was the last time I would be experiencing the absolute insanity of helping to organize this event, and the amazing feeling that comes with helping out countless families in the Delta and Surrey communities.

Though our dedicated Delview volunteers managed to collect over 20,000 cans just over two hours, some of the key organizers knew that meeting this goal wouldn’t be an issue as if we fell short of 20,000 items, the spectacular people at Save On Foods had guaranteed to donate whatever it took to help us reach our goal. However, even though we did meet our goal, Save On Foods still donated the remaining cans of food they had brought in for us, which brought us up to 22,009 items. This has been the second time the class of 2015 has helped break a Thanks For Giving record, but this has certainly been the most memorable.

Without our two amazing teacher sponsors, Mr. Jonathan Kung and Mrs. Heather Cooper, this event would not have happened. Despite all the confusion at the beginning of the year with the teachers’ strike, they still helped make this the most incredible Thanks For Giving Delview has ever seen. Again, I would like to thank all the student, staff, parent and community volunteers that helped make the night possible, and send another huge thank you to the people at Save On Foods whose hearts are just as big as ours.

The graduating class of 2015 is able to leave the school with a legacy of 22,000 cans in the 22nd year of Thanks For Giving - if you ask me, a pretty amazing feat. I cannot express how happy I am to have been a part of this event for the past five years, and how much I owe to the Delview community for making it possible each and every year. Hearing the crowd cheer and scream as we revealed the total is not something I’ll ever forget. This truly has been the most spectacular Thanks For Giving ever.
