All 19 secondary schools in the Surrey School District are receiving the latest in welding protection with new helmets donated by the Canadian Welding Association Foundation (CWA Foundation).
The space-age looking helmets are auto-darkening and feature a phoenix theme.
Five helmets are going to each secondary school’s welding program. With a value of about $160 each, the total donation amounts to $15,000.
The CWA Foundation promotes welding industry safety and education in Canada.
