Five students from the Port Lincoln Special School are currently attending PLHS each Thursday morning to undertake a dedicated Technology class with Mr Tony DuBois. Picture here are (L-R) Noah, Zac, Tony, Brodie, Rebecca and Dani.
During the pilot program back in Semester 1, Tony assisted Noah and Zac to produce a wooden spatula, a key ring and a wooden box. This semester, the five enthusiastic students have been learning about various workshop tools and machinery. They have developed their self-confidence and an understanding of the importance of correct measurements. These skills will be transferred into a plastic key ring project in the coming weeks.
The group are also working through a language and literacy workbook for homework, whilst the important themes of safety and respect are consistently reinforced throughout each lesson.
In addition to the outstanding teaching and care provided by Tony, the students have been very well supported by Special School staff Emily and Carly, and on occasions, their parents and grandparents.
Congratulations to all involved in this wonderful initiative, particular Mr Tony DuBois. We look forward to reporting back on the successful completion of their Tech projects.
