Physical Geography 12
Geography is a subject that integrates many academic disciplines.  It addresses both the physical and human-created systems of the world in the study of people, places, and environments.  It serves as an excellent introduction to first year courses at college or university. Specifically, we will investigate how the earth works – in the air, on the ground, under the ground, and among living things. We examine how humans adapt to and alter the physical environments around them. We explore how humans have special attachments and uses for particular places. We ask questions about what it all means… what’s our connection to the world around us and how can we promote sustainable wellness in our communities and beyond?

20th Century World History 12
This course covers world history from the end of World War I to the breakup of the Soviet Union.

Throughout each unit we examine current events, interesting legal cases and may view some films that relate to the legal concepts we study. The course includes a possible field study to the Vancouver Law Courts to observe what really happens.

Philosophy 12
Philosophy is a unique class, since it is not concerned with teaching you what to think but rather how to think about some of life’s biggest and most mysterious questions such as: What is the meaning of life? Can we actually be sure of anything? Are we living in a simulation? Does god exist? Is it possible to know right from wrong? Is our entire life determined or controlled? Is anything I believe actually true? This class often makes students realize that they have not actually thought deeply about so many interesting ideas in the world around them. After taking this class you will have developed some valuable skills that will help you in anything you do in life. You will know how to think, speak and write in a clear and logical way, how to make better arguments and recognize bad ones, how to consider and respect alternate opinions to your long-standing beliefs and how to look at the world around you in a new and exciting way.

At this level, it is assumed that students have a genuine interest in pursuing a Metalwork related occupation. This course will allow the student to further their Metalwork skills through teacher assigned projects but may also allow students to concentrate in chosen areas such as machining and welding. It is also very likely at this level that students will have moved from reading available shop drawings to generating their own to pursue a project through a perceived need. Some final discussions in this class might also focus on the recycling of metal items as well as historical, social and cultural implications of metal artifacts. *Recommendation that student has completed Metalwork 11.

Microsoft I.T. Academy 11/ 12

This course is for the student who has taken Woodwork 11. The course will be an extension of the grade 11 course and follows very closely the grade 11 course. More machine tools and processes will be explored and projects will be completed accordingly. Jig and fixture design is very likely at this level to allow students to produce multiple furniture parts. At this level students will be asked to challenge their own skill level. There are no teacher assigned projects at this level so it is expected that students will either design their own cabinet or furniture work in consultation with the teacher or will work on a teacher assigned cabinet and furniture project. Final discussion will also focus on historical, social, and cultural implications of wooden artifacts.

Metalwork 11

Metalwork 11 is a course that is available to grade 11 students who have never previously taken Metalwork or to the student who has taken Metalwork 9 or 10.
