Try A Day
Year 9 & 10 students have the opportunity to attend AGA Trade Training Centre in Deer Park on Thursday 12th September to explore apprenticeship career pathways in plumbing, carpentry, electrical & automotive. See Careers Team if interested.
Here are some examples of the projects completed by Year 2 Engineering Students:
Jacob Spence (Yr 11)
and Wilondra Kashindi (Year 12).
The students had to interpret drawings and use lathes, milling machines and pedestal drills to manufacture a large, wobbly stationary engine. The completed product operates as a 2 stroke engine fuelled by compressed air. The students should be very pleased with the skills and knowledge they have developed in VET Engineering during the 2 year program.
