The last day of Saugeen District Secondary School’s (SDSS) first semester was cause for celebration for the 18 students enrolled in the Construction Specialist High Skills Major taught by construction teacher Bud Halpin, as their semester project, a workshop at the Southampton Cemetery, was open and completed for parents and community partners to view. Town of Saugeen Shores staff, many of whom donned custom workshop sweaters promoting the partnership between the Town and SDSS, joined together for barbecue.

The semester project for the students gave them onsite construction experience while gaining school credits, site certifications, first aid training and apprenticeship hours through the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (OYAP).
