Mullumbimby High School hosted a practical workshop for year 9 and 10 girls last week. The event was supported by SALT (Supporting and Linking Tradeswomen) and the DoE EPP (Educational Pathways Program).
The workshop allowed tradeswomen from all over Australia as well as some working on the Mullumbimby High School flood recovery program work, from Bennett Constructions, to join with and inspire the next generation.
MHS girls spent the day working with qualified tradeswomen designing and constructing timber caddies.
Students developed new skills and confidence in using machinery to complete projects.
In addition, they heard stories of the various opportunities, pathways and training available for women in trade industries. A great day was had by all!
