Saugeen District Secondary School (SDSS) students have recently completed a fully accessible washroom at the Port Elgin Airport.

The Town of Saugeen Shores, the Airport Committee and SDSS teacher Bud Halpin set up the hands-on project as part of the grade 11/12 Construction class. The students worked hard on the project in November, doing everything themselves from carpentry to plumbing under the supervision of Halpin and the guidance of the Building Department.

“This is a great experience for the students to learn life skills,” says Jayne Jagelewski, Director of Community Services for Saugeen Shores. “They are putting into practice the skills they gained in the classroom, and the Town is thrilled to get students involved in projects like this, which in turn benefit the community.”

This is one of many projects on which the Town  the has partnered with the class on. Over the last few years the SDSS Construction class has made many contributions to the community including work on the Fairy Lake Rotary Pavilion, the new boardwalks at the beaches in both Port Elgin and Southampton, and the Saugeen Rail Trial accessible trail head building.
