Young brick­ies the best

Ellenbrook Advocate - - NEWS -

STU­DENTS from El­len­brook Se­condary Col­lege have com­peted in the World Skills Brick­lay­ing Expo, with three tak­ing out top awards.

Six stu­dents par­tic­i­pated in the expo held last month at the Perth Con­ven­tion Cen­tre, where they each took part in a pro­ject which was judged.

The stu­dents, who are un­der­tak­ing a cer­tifi­cate II in build­ing and con­struc­tion, were pre­sented with their cer­tifi­cates and prizes from the expo last week.

Stu­dents Duan Du­ven­hage took out gold, Michael Tier­ney-Moore won sil­ver and Keanu Kaukasi won bronze for their pro­ject.

Col­lege work­place learn­ing ad­min­is­tra­tion of­fi­cer Tracy Hay­don said the event was pos­i­tive and showed off the stu­dents’ skills.

“This event, along with the stu­dents un­der­tak­ing their cert II in build­ing and con­struc­tion, re­ally can help set them up in the in­dus­try,” she said.

“The stu­dents were proud of their achieve­ments and re­ally en­joyed the day out at the expo and worked very hard on their projects.

“For three of the six stu­dents to come out with gold, sil­ver and bronze is a fan­tas­tic achieve­ment by the school and the gifts and cer­tifi­cates handed to them will hold them in great stead for ap­pren­tice­ships in the fu­ture.”
