Sit-to-Stand Height Adjustable Table
The FoliTM Sit-to-Stand height adjustable tables provide students
with a sturdy, adjustable workstation suitable for writing or
computer work. The option to stand, rather than sit, will be
a significant benefit to students with disabilities during long
periods of exam writing, counselling and tutoring.

Finishing Stapler/Narrow Crown
Several projects in the Employment Transition Construction
Labourer program require students to work with cedar shingles,
and an air stapler is a great way to fasten them. Last year, the
program borrowed equipment for student use. The program
would benefit from having at least two finishing staplers for
ongoing student use. With only one in the shop, students are often
waiting to use it.

General Band Drill Press
Often in the shop, students use larger drill bits on our projects
that are not suited for a hand drill. Some projects require the
accuracy of a perfect vertical hole. Last year, the program
borrowed equipment for student use. The program would benefit
from having this equipment available for ongoing student use.
General Band Saw
This stationary band saw would allow students to produce more
creative and intricate projects in the shop. Currently, students
have to achieve the same outcome with a hand held jig saw, but
often the cuts end up sloppy or poorly angled due to the deflection
of the jig saw blade.
Virtual Construction Trades Training
The Employment Transition Construction Labourer program
supports students with very diverse backgrounds and abilities.
This SimBuild Interactive software would give many of those
students who are visual learners an excellent learning resource,
greater confidence, and greater support for success.
