Students get down to work

STUDENTS from seven schools across Sunraysia converged on the Deakin Trade and Training Centre to get their hands dirty in a variety of potential ­careers.

From mixing mocktails to working on engines, Year 9 and 10 students participated in two-hour workshops focusing on automotive, building and construction, electrical, engineering, furniture making, hospitality and kitchen operations.
