HVIA Excursion

On Friday 14 May, 17 Calamvale students who are currently completing the Cert II in Automotive (pre-apprenticeship course) attended the Brisbane Truck show sponsored by the Heavy Vehicle Industry Australia. In the morning students congregated in the South Bank Piazza where students observed apprentices locating and fixing faults on trucks. Students were also able to mingle and speak with training organisations such as Tafe QLD, who can offer pathways in heavy commercial / trucking industries.

The afternoon session was at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre for the Careers Expo and students learnt about the wide array of products, services and vocations associated with the trucking industry.

One of the highlights of the day was rubbing shoulders with some visiting NRL stars and photo opportunity with Latrell Mitchell from the South Sydney Rabbitohs.


These students are to be commended on taking on this opportunity, being engaged with the stallholders.

Many thanks to the team at HVIA who completely funded the transport and ticket registration for our students to attend and to the supervising teachers on the day Mr Williams, Mr Ueta-Sietene and Mr Coke.
