 Careers in the skilled trades....


Most grade 12 students are getting ready for grad, DAVID WILSON however is looking a little farther into the future. David is a grade 12 student here at REC that is currently working as a paid apprentice in the trade of Transport Trailer  Technician at Setpoint Refrigeration. 

Transport Trailer Technicians repair structural and mechanical components and often work with specialized trailers, David works primarily on refrigerated trailers.

"I get paired with a mechanic, who takes the time to teach me specific repairs as well as stripping old trailer units and helping out with general shop maintenance."

David's been working with his father at Setpoint for about a year, working evenings, weekends and holidays as it fits with his busy hockey schedule. In addition to earning some pocket money David has earned 520 hours towards his certification in the Transport Trailer trade, 4 grade 12 credits and has the opportunity to earn tuition incentives for more technical training once he graduates,.

When asked if he would like to continue learning about repairing trailer units "Yes, for sure. One day I'd like to take over the family business and even expand the company!"

If you are a student interested in a career in the skilled trades or a parent that is currently working in the skilled trades please contact Mr. Anderson in student services or email 

Your holiday shopping can help to support REC’s Classroom Libraries

In the last few years, English teachers have been working to build classroom libraries in order to encourage students to read more often for pleasure.  Classroom libraries help to get more

students reading independently, foster positive attitudes toward reading, and help students to develop the reading stamina they need to do required readings in high school, college, and university.

The problem is, books are expensive, and funding for classroom library book purchases is limited.

You can help us.  If you’re going to be doing some holiday shopping in November and December, consider purchasing a Chapters Indigo e-gift card online from our REC Classroom Libraries campaign.  Cards can be purchased in the amounts of $25, $50, and $100, and while you receive the entire gift card amount, our classroom libraries receive 20% of the total of all e-gift cards purchased as credit toward the purchase of books.  E-gift cards can be used online or in Chapters, Indigo, or Coles stores.

Chapters Indigo carries books, e-books, movies, music,  toys, baby gifts, electronics (including headphones and video game consoles), fashion accessories, and unique serving and home décor items.  There are often sales and discounts leading up to the holidays, such as at the end of November, when a daily toy deal is offered.

To purchase a Chapters Indigo e-gift card and help to support our classroom libraries, please go to REC’s campaign site at  Our goal is to raise $1000 for classroom libraries at REC.

Thanks for your support!
