Western Port Secondary College would like to thank Mr Kevin Toohey and the boys from KK Steel for their continued support to the College. Kevin recently came to the College to help staff member, Ms Christina Moss to set up the welding bays in our new Trade Training Centre.
The school is now offering new courses for both Year 9 and 10 students in basic engineering, welding and fabrication. This to provide students with more ‘hands on experience’ in an industry, which is best, suited to the area and therefore increasing employment opportunities for its students.
Kevin has been keen to support the new courses because he understands and sees the value of these skills in an industry that continues to thrive against automation and robotic intervention. ‘Just giving students the opportunity to learn these skills so that they can use them in later life or help them get into TAFE or onto an apprenticeship is invaluable.’
