“It is a great interactive opportunity for them to try a trade, and really understand what is going to be best for them once they finish school,” she said.
Nerang State High School student Bradley told myGC he can’t wait to study a trade.
“I am looking at getting into construction or engineering, so I have been checking out all those stalls today. It has been very interesting and it is cool to get that hands-on experience,” he said.
