A SELECT group of Maryborough State High Students is coming to grips with construction skills in a program giving them firsthand experience of life on a worksite.

The Doorways2Construction program, run by Construction Skills Queensland, offers the five Year 11 students work experience throughout Maryborough during the Easter school holidays as they work towards completing a Certificate I in Construction.
