Handsworth and Ocean Wise Partnership

Ocean Wise 1.pngHandsworth Secondary artists have created coasters in collaboration with Ocean Wise. These designs reflect ideas around Sea forestation - the act of restoring, planting, managing and caring for underwater seaweed forests. Proceeds go to the Ocean Wise Bursary Program, serving schools that have a high concentration of youth vulnerable to the effects of poverty.

Coasters are $20 for a set of 4, or $50 for a set of 12. Cash only to Mr. Bogen​. Email hssartdepartment@gmail.com to place an order. You can choose to purchase a random set of any 4 designs, or provide the number corresponding to each design in your email. (For example, write: “set of 4, numbers 2, 7, 8 and 15.” Or “set of 12, any designs.” We can also create custom coasters with your personal photos for $30 per set of 4 coasters. Images need to have content in the centre with room around the edge, as the image needs to be cropped into a circle. Email hssartdepartment@gmail.com for more details.

TECHNOLOGY EDUCATION AND TECHNOLOGY IN SCHOOLS

TEALS.png
2018 TEALS Volunteer Recruitment letter.pdf

Handsworth Secondary School has an exciting opportunity to partner with TEALS (Technology Education and Literacy in Schools) for the 2018/19 year! Learning computer science empowers young people to compete in the global economy and pursue careers across all sectors because it teaches students computational thinking and problem solving skills applicable in any industry. This partnership will enhance our computer science courses, and we need computer industry volunteers to help make it happen!


If you or someone you know works in the computer science or software engineering field and would be interested in making a difference in our students’ future success, please contact Ms. Rupi Samra at rsamra@sd44.ca.
