That's the 3rd major accident for that project supervisor in the last few years according to an insider

John Scheren.  I was told he was responsible for the ramp collapse at 834 Johnson that nearly killed several people and there was the crane collapse at Tillicum Target

Sad to see the old high school I attended being torn down I'm sure the new one will be great though, wish they would have kept the original 1929 part of the old high school for historical sake and torn down the rest of the additions. Also I think the plans for rejuvenating the section of Bowker Creek that goes through the high school grounds are excellent.

I felt like this as well, but then I toured the 1929 block recently and realized it's falling apart, it's a dump, and other than being old there's nothing special about it.

Yes, however it is the only part literally thousands of people who attended Oak Bay High would be able to relate to in the future.

Those 1950s era schools sure were utilitarian and bland.

It's hard to believe they actually trust students with those machines from the incidents I remember and the stories I have heard I think Oak Bay High was averaging a lost appendage about every two years, I remember coming close to blowing up the school accidentally at least once over in the metal shop.

They never did find poor Jimmy, just his running shoe jammed in the planner.

Based on what I learned at Oak Bay High I highly recommend wearing a cup when using a table saw(i really wish I was joking)

I was at the Senior High when a student set the blade too low on the table saw and fired a chunk of his project through the finishing room window. His chair ended up with only three legs.

I didn't lose any body parts and I still have the table I made in Jr. High.  And the little box.  And the other box with the lid.

For me, it was the chemistry lab (though not at this school). Had too much fun with sodium and water, experimenting beyond that seemed intriguing. Didn't manage anything spectacular, thankfully :P.
