Students from four district schools are busy making cubby houses to sell for Christmas.
Seventeen VCE VET Building and Construction students from Echuca College, St Joseph’s College, Cohuna Secondary and Rochester Secondary schools have worked on the cubby houses for about 13 weeks.
Teacher Dan Davidson said students were taught the principles of building first and then how put their knowledge into practice.
Mr Davidson said he aimed to teach the students ‘‘work ethic and high quality workmanship’’.
The course allows students to gain hands-on training before starting apprenticeships, Mr Davidson said.
He said it was also a hunting ground for prospective employers looking for apprentices.
The four cubby houses will be sold for Christmas, and the money returned into the course.
Those interested in buying a cubby house can contact Mr Davidson at Echuca College on 5482 1133.
