A class trip for Northern Secondary School students has resulted in a very generous donation from Honda of Canada Manufacturing that will benefit students for years to come. Their donation of a 2018 Honda Civic Si and two 4-cylinder turbo charged engine transmission assemblies will allow for learning opportunities that align with the current automotive manufacturing job market, 21st Century Learning and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education.
In November 2017, Grades 11 and 12 students in Kevin Baker’s Technological Design visited the Honda of Canada manufacturing plant in Alliston, Ontario to learn about robotics, the manufacturing process and careers in the automotive industry.
“This tremendous donation will bring an awareness to our students about post-secondary opportunities which includes employment, apprenticeships, college and university pathways. It is a great experience for the students who took part in the trip to be able to see transition of the vehicle being built in the assembly plant and having the final product back in their school,” said Northern principal Laurent Paquette.
The Near North District School Board is extremely grateful to Honda of Canada Manufacturing for their generous donation as well as Lafond Towing and Recovery Limited in Sturgeon Falls.
