Students in a woodworking class at Fort St. James Secondary School were determined to make a difference.

The class of Grade 11 and 12 students have been busy making toys for the Fort St. James Toy and Food Drive.

Grade 11 student, Katrina Holden made a wooden xylophone. “It didn’t take me too long. It was a lot of fun to make.”

A variety of toys were produced by the class including: planes, trains, cars, and a rocking horse. The toys will be delivered to organizers of the Toy and Food Drive.

Woodworking teacher, Gary Soles, is thrilled with what the kids have created.

“Our wood is mostly donated from the mill so it’s really great to be able to give back to the community,” Soles said.
