Teacher donates cubby house to Can Assist Wagga

A passionate construction teacher has been successful in providing his students at the Riverina Youth Justice Centre with the opportunity to up-skill themselves while giving back to the community.

Brad Ryan is a VET construction teacher at the Shepherds Park Education and Training Unit at the Riverina Youth Justice Centre and has been working with a cohort of 13 students on a unique project.

The project is part of the students certificate two in construction and was the first of its kind for the centre.

With some help from fellow industrial technology teacher Joel Watts, the group constructed a cubby house which will be donated to Can Assist Wagga to be raffled off.

“Over the past year a dedicated group of certificate two construction students have been working on a meaningful project – constructing a cubby house to donate to Can Assist Wagga,” Mr Bradley said.
