Financial boost for trade students

Chloe FraserBusselton Dunsborough Times

Busselton Senior High School building and construction students Chloe Markham and Keeley Rabaud are looking forward to completing their certificates after each receiving scholarships towards their studies at Busselton’s Trade Training Centre.

The Year 11 students received a monetary voucher donated by Hip Pocket Workwear Busselton to help pay for safety gear and workwear.

Chloe and Keeley have launched into the term, completing theory work and building outdoor tables, chairs and storage boxes. The girls will begin work placement next month, based at the engineering department at Busselton Hospital and in maintenance at West Busselton Primary School. While Chloe’s goal is to be an electrician or a plumber, Keeley said she hoped to make the most of her opportunity at TTC and was open to options.

Keeley said she was looking forward to her placement and getting out into the workplace.

“It will help us find where we want to be and get a feel for what it’s like,” she said.
