Lithgow High School’s senior construction class got their hands dirty at a recent visit to Bathurst TAFE.

The students were able to undertake the practical skills necessary to achieve part of their course competencies in bricklaying.

Under the expert guidance of Bathurst TAFE teacher Peter Moore the students were able to practice some of the basic skills and also learn about the career opportunities available in the bricklaying trades.

The students have benefited from the practical experiences they gained on the day and in appreciation would like to thank both Peter Moore who has continually given up his time over many  years, along with the support of Brendan Coyle from the ‘Bricklaying Foundation’, who made it all possible by helping to fund some of the day's activities.
