Students come to the table

A TERM of hard work has come to a spectacular end for Gympie Trade Training Centre students.

Last term, the students were appointed the task of building a custom-made conference table for James Nash State High School.

They began the job by measuring up the required dimensions, researching materials and creating price lists.

They were then able to use the specialised equipment on hand at the centre, along with their construction and engineering skills, to produce an impressive industrial style table.

Students also benefited from a lesson on spray painting techniques which enabled them to varnish the table.

Staff and students met their deadline and delivered the table to James Nash on the last day of Term 1.

James Nash State High principal Darrin Edwards and the office staff were overwhelmed at the suitability and quality features of the table.

The Gympie Trade Training Centre team looks forward to future projects that will push them to test their skills.
