SIB­LINGS David and Bon­nie Miller are study­ing au­to­mo­tive en­gi­neer­ing with their cousin Jessie Cal­lope at the Wangetti cam­pus.

“I want to be an au­to­mo­tive en­gi­neer be­cause not many fe­males are in that line of busi­ness and I love cars,” Bon­nie said.

“It’s chal­leng­ing but its fun, lots of hard work, but I get to push around the boys.”

David is in his final year and wants to be­come a diesel fit­ter in the army and said they take their stud­ies at Wangetti se­ri­ously.

“It’s a good chal­lenge and I love the place and in the end they’re al­ways here for you,” he said. cousin Jessie Cal­lope

Jessie said he wants to be a diesel fit­ter in the mines.

“We just pulled apart an en­gine, stripped a Volk­swa­gen and we have tyre chang­ing com­pe­ti­tions, tyre bal­anc­ing and pit stop com­pe­ti­tions,” he said.

These stu­dents and their class­mates are start­ing work place­ment train­ing next term as part of the school’s am­bi­tion un­der the lead­er­ship of Noel Pear­son and Cape York Part­ner­ships to see ev­ery stu­dent exit with job qual­i­fi­ca­tions and a place­ment.
