Family takes on automotive engineering to better future
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.
