Students shine in WorldSkills
ELLENBROOK Secondary College students took part in the WorldSkills Australia Awards 2017 recently, walking away with six medals.
Student Chloe Ebsworth took out a gold for commercial cooking, while Nathan Barclay bagged gold in carpentry and Benjamin Craig took home bronze.
Jacobus (Duan) Duvenhage was awarded gold in the bricklaying category, while Michael Tierney-Moore got silver and Keanu Kaukasi took bronze.
Nathan, Jacobus and Chloe also qualified for the 2017 WA Training Squad and will compete at a national level next year.
Ellenbrook Secondary College VET co-ordinator Debbie Harris said the school was proud of the students involved.
“It’s great to see young students preparing to have a go and work outside of their comfort zones,” she said. “In the process they are connecting their classroom practices to real industry experiences.
