St Mary MacKillop College is delighted to announce that Year 12 student Josh Haynes has been named as the ACT Australian School-Based Apprentice of the Year.
Josh received the award at the 2022 ACT Training Awards, which were held at QT Hotel on Thursday 15 September.
Josh was nominated by his employer, Platinum Plumbing Canberra, at the suggestion of MacKillop’s Careers & VET Coordinator, Ms Karen Hundy.
Josh, who is completing a Certificate III in Plumbing, works on his ASBA two days per week, which involves one day of plumbing work and one day of study at CIT, but he also does an additional day of work on a Saturday.
“It’s unreal, I’m so happy and I really didn’t expect it,” Josh said.
“I’m planning on making plumbing my career and I know this qualification will set me up for life.”
MacKillop had two finalists at the ACT Training Awards, with Gemma Jones of Year 11 also nominated for ASBA of the Year for her involvement in the Women in Construction Pathways Program and her completion of a Certificate II in Resources and Infrastructure Work Preparation.
We congratulate both Josh and Gemma for their achievements!
