A selection of Deniliquin High School Year 9 and 10 boys are taking part in the latest Workskills program, which has been called ‘Gener8’.
A Gener8 session is held once a week for seven weeks and sees students complete a community project.
The young men are helping out at the Deniliquin Ute Muster site on Conargo Rd, which will involve the construction of some new fence lines.
They will also be involved in a new community engagement course at Deniliquin TAFE called Participate in a Community Project.
Richard Sievers (TAFE) and Ute Muster site manager Pip Whykes are coordinating the program.
Assisting them are Personnel Group senior employment broker Ian Galloway, Deni High teacher Donna Van Lieshout, Deniliquin Business Chamber member coordinator Susie Buckley, TAFE’s Leonie Francis, Play on the Plains general manager Kate Pitt and Murray Industry & Community Education Employment Partnership broker Mardi Chartres.
The aim of Gener8 is to engage students and improve their schooling and post school outcomes.
‘‘The program allows students to appreciate the roles and responsibilities associated with site management of a large community asset,’’ Mrs Chartres said.
‘‘They see relevance of learning through personal growth, skill development and community connection.
‘‘It’s about empowering engagement and skill development to generate participants’ identity as positive and active citizens of the school and wider community.’’
