Forestry Expo Success

On Monday the ground and gym at the school became alive to the sounds of sirens. Businesses and companies showed their wares at the first Forestry Expo at the school. HVP, Austimber, Leeson’s Harvest and Haulage, Catapillar, Waratah, Kennedy trailers, Gelliondale Nursery, Alberton Timber , A and C Drakeford weed control and many others were in attendance to show the varying job opportunities available in the forestry industry. Students were spoken to first about the many careers available, many of which are around the area, then they were free to use the simulators, talk to the businesses in the industry, jump in vehicles, sounding the sirens, use fire hoses and get a feel for the industry through these hands on activities. Many students came away more informed and realising there are plenty of jobs available right here on our doorstep.
