School Links with Kelvin Grove State College
G.James has School-Industry Links with Kelvin Grove State College and has enabled us to assist them with a special project to design and build a trailer for the school’s ride on mower. This assistance include supplying materials; teaching the students how to cut, bend and weld aluminium; and helping the school to source trade specific tools and equipment.
Students from the school have benefited by being able to have hands on real work in a real work environment.
