Punnichy Career Transition Program

  In an effort to improve student retention and success beyond school, Punnichy Community High School, in collaboration with George Gordons, Muskowekwan, and Daystar First Nations have begun the Career Transition Initiative, which offers students credits for high school and technical school at the same time.​ This allows students to meet their requirements for graduation as well as leave with a varied portfolio of experience.

Currently the program offers:

  • Construction and Carpentry - Junior Level:
    Students in this program spend half a day at the rink learning the basics of Construction and Carpentry. Students have the opportunity to gain apprenticeship hours through this program. They will also earn their First Aid, CPR, SCOT, and WHMIS as part of the program. Their major projects tend to be the creation of several sheds.

  • Construction and Carpentry - Senior Level:
    Students in this program spend the last four months of the school year learning advanced topics in Construction and Carpentry. Students in this program have the opportunity to gain apprenticeship hours. Students take several more certifications that will benefit them in the workplace. Some years, students will participate in a three week work placement with a construction crew around the Regina area. Students participate in building a capstone project, which in past years has included a massive outdoor shop.
