A celebration took place at school assembly where five year 13 students were presented with certificates by Steel and Tube CEO Mark Malpass and Papakura High School Principal John Rohs, their proud whānau in attendance to support their journey.

The students will be going to different Steel and Tube sites every Monday for the rest of the school year where they will learn about the end to end process of steel manufacturing and production.

Year 13 student, Rodney, received his forklift license through Papakura High School and is excited at the opportunity of being able to use it at Steel and Tube.

The Manukau Jobs and Skills hub provided transportation, kai and Person Protection Equipment (PPE). They look forward to supporting these students and broadening the scope to other schools and employers throughout the year.
