Plumbing student Kaleb Careri-Wilson represented Box Hill Institute at the recent WorldSkills Regional Competition held at Swinburne University in Croydon.
Currently completing his apprenticeship with The Basin Plumbing Service, Kaleb was tasked with recreating a replica of Australia made out of functioning piping, which took him almost six hours to build.
In preparation for the competition, Kaleb was mentored by plumbing teacher, Stephen Neasey, who conducted practice runs for him with various material. This mentorship is a testament to the dedication our teachers have to students and demonstrates how they put the student at the heart of what they do.
Stephen was in attendance at the WorldSkills Regional Competition to cheer Kaleb on. He said, “WorldSkills was a great opportunity to build Kaleb’s confidence and to showcase what he has learned at Box Hill Institute. I’d recommend the experience to any student and teacher.”
The results of the competition will be revealed in November. Meanwhile, you can check out Kaleb’s competition entry, which is on display in Building E2 at our Box Hill campus, outside the plumbing department.
