Under the guidance of Carpentry Teacher, Gavin Daziel, and Principal Huel Moss, four S. C. Bootle High School students have been given the task of assisting with basic repairs and maintenance around the Abaco Islands school.
This would include such chores as desk adjustments, re-installing cupboard doors, repairs involving minor carpentry skills, etc. According to Moss, each student was supplied with their own carpenter’s apron complete with the necessary tools to get their jobs done.
He explained that the MacGyver Club members will earn school hours throughout the school year, which is a compulsory component for graduation. It is hoped that this initiative will not only instill and strengthen school pride, but will also develop various technical skills which may be beneficial for later life.
