August 2016: Tannum Sands High School Construction 

Tannum Blue has supported Tannum Sands State High School (TSSHS) by enabling them to purchase $3000 worth of new tools for the Certificate 1 in Resource Infrastructure Skills course and students completing a Certificate II in Workplace Practices .

Students built five, timber market stall tables for Council's CBD Pop-up Enterprise trial helped by this funding. Hands on learning around the school is a win-win, with the students embarking on a concreting project for a future seating area.

The school based construction course will develop projects both in-house and for the local community, with students also learning about costing out jobs whilst building a skill set for the future for themselves.
