In Woodwork, pupils will learn fundamental life skills such as planning projects, managing their workspace and organising themeselves to complete woodwork projects and a portfolio of work. Pupils will learn these skills in a very hands-on manner within a safe environment. Pupils use hand tools to build their skills for example, chisels, mallets, screw-drivers, tenon saws, planes, try-squares and a ruler/measuring tapes. These skills are certified in Junior Certificate Materials and Technology(Wood), FETAC Level 3 Woodcraft and JC2 Woodwork.
Pupils complete projects such as a spice rack, a clock, a jewellery box, a mirror frame, a small stool,a table, a CD rack, a tray and a bird house. Pupils whilst taking great enjoyment from woodwork tend to learn a lot.
