On Monday November 2nd, a group of ten year ten students were able to participate in a tour of Norweld Fabrication organised by the Business Liaison Association. Mark Law guided students through the well-developed site of Aluminium canopy and vehicle tray building. Students were able to see application of autocad drawings, cnc milling, hydraulic folding, tig welding, auto electrical and assembly. The presentation was informative and provided students with insight regarding the requirements to work in the industry for a multinational company. An excellent opportunity for our students to experience work in industry.

On Thursday Year 10 students from St Andrew's Catholic College also enjoyed a visit to Norweld and a presentation on the application of autocad drawings, hydraulic folding, tig welding and auto electrical and assembly. Students enjoyed the presentation. Thank you Linda Saiti of Norweld for arranging.

Norweld visit was an excellent trip, students engaged with the process of fabricating from design to completion and shipping out. Opened students eyes to the variety of work available. Also amazing to see world class Industry 4.0 standard ideas been incorporated into local business. Personally I like how I got to meet the people doing the hiring so I can assist with placing students on work experience and subsequent employment. Cairns State High School had 21 students and three teachers visit across two one hour trips.

St Stephen's took 9 students to Norweld for our site visit on November 3. The students really enjoyed the tour and Shannon's and Linda's hospitality (and humor) on the day. The students finally realised how much thought and effort goes into designing and manufacturing the quality products that Norweld produce. Many thanks to the Norweld team from Students and staff from St Stephen's Catholic College Mareeba.
