Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Bengalla Apprentices were unable to complete a project out in the community in 2021 so instead they completed an inspiring project on site.
Bengalla’s 3rd Year Apprentices were tasked with a project of designing and painting an old dragline bucket to be placed on display for employees, contractors, and visitors to see as they arrive and leave site.
All the apprentices partook in a competition to submit an ‘Entry’ and ‘Exit’ message to be painted on the bucket. Once all entries were received the Bengalla Managers voted on the best messages to be used.
The winning entry message was submitted by Reyde Hennessy and Jaidan Smolders and their message reads. ’We can’t wait for you to come Home’ ’What’s your reason, Safety First’.
The winning exit message was submitted by Emily Fear and Taylah Moore, and their message reads, ‘They’re waiting for you at home, Drive Safe’.
The 3rd year Apprentices were then tasked to organise the designs to be painted on the bucket and the outstanding end result speaks for itself.
Well done to the 3rd year apprentices on a successful execution of their Project and well done to the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th year apprentices on the completion of the Bucket.
This year Bengalla hope to be able to get back out into the community and complete a “November 2022 Apprentice Project.”
