We gathered outside the Automotive workshop just before 9:00am where the students viewed our vehicles and challenged us with some very tricky technical questions. The students showed a very informed interest in the automotive trade. Notes were taken and we signed their project forms.
Terry Atkins, GVV&CVC member and trade teacher then gave us a guided tour of the most fabulous Auto workshop imaginable with no expense spared on the facility or equipment. Perhaps the Gov. could supply us a carbon copy.
We then toured the other workshops which housed an astounding inventory of tools and equipment not seen since the Tech Schools were closed down, thank goodness this one has survived. The workshops included a Machine shop, Metal shop, Carpentry shop, Paint shop, Electronics workshop and Cad drawing with 3D printing.
After the tour we were treated to a great morning tea with more students viewing our vehicles.
Thanks to Terry Atkins for an enlightening run to a hidden treasure and a refreshing look at our talented youth.
