Local Student Commended at HIA NSW Apprenticeship Awards
Housing Industry Association (HIA) apprentices celebrated their success recently at the 2012 HIA Stratco NSW Apprenticeship Awards.
The Apprenticeship Awards encourage, and most importantly recognise quality workmanship and the extraordinary talent of HIA Apprentices to the housing industry.
“I would like to congratulate all our award winners and finalists who represent the best in the business”, said HIA Executive Director, NSW, Mr David Bare. “Each year the bar is raised higher making the judging process all the more difficult.”
“I applaud the outstanding achievement of our apprentices. They have displayed passion,
enthusiasm and commitment in developing their skills to a high standard in the building industry
which will make them exceptional role models for future apprentices. Their ‘can do’ attitude is to
be commended. These young men will be exceptional builders and I wish them every success in
their future endeavours,” added Mr Bare.
The Hills district was represented in the School Based Achievement Award an initiative run by the
HIA and local builders, where students can stay at school to complete their HSC, but can start
working onsite, do certain school subjects and attend Year 11 and 12 at TAFE.
Local Kellyville student, 17 year old, Keiran Evans, won the School based Achievement Award after
working as an apprentice with local Hills District builder, Brett Kingham of Know How Constructions.
Brett said he would continue with Keiran as a second year apprentice after he had completed his HSC
