Try a Trade Day

Try a trade day
21 November 2016

The Trade Days ran over 3 days with 21 year 9 and 10 students taking part. It is the initiative of the Construction Training Fund.  Part of their role is to help young people enter a career in construction, so there are skilled trade’s people for the future.

Over the 3 days students got to experience tiling, roof plumbing and electrical trades. Thanks to the lectures from South Regional TAFE, Rod Connell, Peter Sudran and Kath Brown for running the activities. Students got to tile a floor, cutting the tiles to form patterns. Students also leart how to wire and build small electric motors. Roof plumbing involved assembling/fabricating roof gutters. The students did extremely well, even enduring a 37 degree day. The lectures where very happy with the students on the day and they look forward to come back and run even more sessions next year!!!
