Aldridge construction pupils test their skills with arbour
ALDRIDGE State High School's senior construction class are proud of their latest project.
The class has done a professional job constructing an arbour (a framework that supports climbing plants).
The outdoor structure has been completed as part of the student's Certificate I Construction studies.
"The students are getting real world skills working on real life projects," construction teacher Damien Blyth said.
"In fact this project has required them to demonstrate skills that would usually be of a Certificate II or III standard."
School principal Mr Ross Higgins said the school feels privileged to have their own construction crew complete works around the school.
"Their projects not only demonstrate the fantastic skills that these students are gaining but also serve to enhance our grounds," Mr Higgins said.
Once spring arrives wisteria will be planted and in the near future the arbour will be draped in purple blossoms.
