FU­TURE

land­scap­ers, brick­lay­ers, car­pen­ters, metal work­ers, painters and ir­ri­ga­tors have started their con­struc­tion ca­reers through a com­mu­nity pro­ject.

The Tar­get Work part­ner­ship brought 63 stu­dents from eight sec­ondary schools in the north­ern sub­urbs to Mawson Lakes for one day a week to con­struct a con­crete path, tim­ber bridge, shel­ter, bar­be­cue, re­tain­ing walls, steps and land­scap­ing.

Delfin Lend Lease com­mu­nity and ed­u­ca­tion de­vel­op­ment man­ager Kelvin Trimper says the pro­gram cre­ates com­mu­nity fa­cil­i­ties as well as gives the youth con­tacts and ex­pe­ri­ence to seek ca­reers in the con­struc­tion in­dus­try.

It was one of 140 projects to be com­pleted through the Tar­get Work pro­gram.
