Tradies Club


Tradies Club

Last Wednesday afternoon saw the first “Tradies Club”.  Tradies Club is a group for boys at Charleville State High School which involves Tradesmen from the Murweh Shire Council demonstrating and informing the boys about their specific trade. This also gives the students an opportunity to build positive relationships with each other and positive male role models within the community.
This week the boys were given an insight into a mechanics world with Joel Frazer spending an hour with the boys going through the workings of a car, teaching them the basics such as checking the oil and changing the tyres. The boys were thoroughly engaged in what Joel was demonstrating and were keen to ask questions after and banter over the best make and model of cars.
In the following weeks we hope to have carpenters, painters, plumbers, gardeners & machinery operators but for this Wednesday we have asked Joel back as the boys who attended the group requested more mechanical information. Joel hopes to bring in a small motor and show the boys how to service it.
A big thanks to Mayor Annie Liston and the Murweh Shire Council for allowing the Tradies to attend the school during work hours.
