Lakie Grade 7s learn "Skills That Everyone Should Know" during Build Day

G.S. Lakie Middle School’s CTF  Build Day included Grade 8 students, as Lakie partnered with Ascroft Homes. It was such a huge success, and the school decided to do something similar again.

This term, Grade 7s have been given an opportunity to experience/learn different skills.

On Wednesday, the school hosted another Build Day.

The theme of the day was, Skills That Everyone Should Know… OR Make a Career Out of it.

Lakie partnered with local businesses and the school district maintenance department to set up about a dozen stations. Students had the opportunity to choose their top five stations, and spend 20-30 minutes at each station throughout the morning. Students learned new skills and made valuable career connections.

Some stations included:

- Basic Vehicle Maintenance (Ascent Cycle)

- Building Raised Flower Beds (Burnco and ExpoCrete)

- Word Working and Power Tools (Lethbridge School District No. 51)

- Drywall Repair and Hanging Shelves (Lethbridge School District No. 51)

- Basic Electrical (Lethbridge School District No. 51)

- Basic Plumbing (Lethbridge School District No. 51)

- Painting and Staining

- Changing a Spare Tire (Elrich Tires).
