Central Australia’s best trades’ students have been acknowledged for excellence at a prize-giving event at Alice Springs campus.

Team Leader Jamie Finn said each student had performed well in their classes and demonstrated a high degree of skill and competence.

“We are delighted to see that there are many high-quality apprentices in Alice Springs across automotive, construction, electro-technology and welding,” he said.

“It is a reflection of their commitment and attitude towards their employer, their trainer and the opportunities in their chosen field.”

The apprentices of the year for 2014 are: Anthony Garraway (automotive), Joseph Nobleza (construction) and Mason Bland (welding).

Prizes were also presented to first, second and third year apprentices in automotive and electro-technology. The winners were Bretag Lloyd, Darrell Oestreich and Anthony Garraway in automotive, and Rheon Davis, Tim Clifton and Daniel Clifton in electro-technology.

The next prize-giving ceremony in Alice Springs has been set for Monday November 30 at the Araluen Theatre.

Acting Director Central Australia Lyle Mellors said the end-of-year event had been set for a 7pm start to enable as many students, families, employers and sponsors to attend.

He said the event would encompass students from all schools and faculties active in Alice Springs.
