Industrious students rewarded

2013 Skills Luncheon
​Acting Principal Greg Jones congratulates Michael Scheuerle​

Oakey State High School's Industrial Skills Centre incorporates full day programs each week in construction, engineering and furnishing. 

“We recognise and reward safe and industrious working by students at various points in their respective courses across three vocational training areas. In recognition of those students who reach various milestones in safe work hours, we present them with tools appropriate for their respective industry courses”,  Mr Andrew Train told guests at the I.S.C. end of year luncheon.

The luncheon enabled local business owners and employers to visit Oakey State High School and meet some of the young people that they support through structured workplace learning opportunities, and/or the provision of project work. 

Also amongst the guests was Mr Mike Dwight, who has been the 'Doorways 2 Construction' mentor at Oakey State High School for the past three years. Mr Dwight was thanked for his contribution of expertise in this capacity and the school looks forward to his ongoing support as a volunteer in our construction program.

Throughout the school year Oakey State High School students of construction, engineering and furnishing not only acquire knowledge and on the job training, but they are also expected to develop reliability, a sound work ethic, and safe work practices. The incentive awards also reward initiative, punctuality, and the ability to focus on task.

Year 12 student, Michael Scheuerle, collected incentives from both engineering and construction departments. Michael was the only student to attain 240 safe working hours in both construction and engineering.

Rachelle Gotz, and Corey Riddle received awards for 160 safe working hours in engineering, while Jacob Norris received incentives for attaining 160 hours in both construction and engineering. 

Renee Tanzer, Josh Taylor and Lucy Young each received awards for 160 safe work hours in furnishing.
