We congratulate a young carpenter

We wish year 10 student Michael Spiteri in Austin 2 the best of luck as he competes in the World Skills Competition for VET carpentry.

He will represent Bendigo Kangan Institute and Assumption College on Monday, September 12 as the only first-year student nominated for 2017. Michael will be competing against others in the Melbourne region, and if he wins gold he'll move through to the National competition later this year. Here's hoping he brings home gold.
