As she opened the building Mrs Sudmalis encouraged the students to follow their dreams and ambitions in hospitality as the industry “can take you all over the world”. “You have no idea where your future’s going to take you. Good luck to you all, I hope it’s a wonderful journey,” Mrs Sudmalis said. “I look forward to seeing your stories as they develop over time” Mrs Sudmalis said the Danggaa Trades Skills Centre – named using a traditional Dhurga word described as meaning to eat or take food – was all about equipping local students with the skills they needed to help them get jobs in the future. The trades skills centre’s development including refurbishing the existing home science/food technology spaces to include a commercial kitchen and preparation areas, ancillary spaces and a new covered teaching bistro, as well as providing equipment. “The Australian Government is committed to ensuring vocational training meets the needs of industry and employers and to providing students with training, particularly in areas where there are skills shortages,” Ms Sudmalis said. “Skills training at secondary school provides a pathway to enter the workplace or to continue to pursue further training after school. “I congratulate the entire school community for its foresight in getting this centre up and running.” The Assistant Minister for Vocational Education and Skills, the Hon Karen Andrews MP, also congratulated Moruya High School on the official opening. Minister Andrews said that as well as delivering increased funding to schools, the Australian Government is focusing on quality education for Australian students. “While buildings alone do not make a great school, I hope students and staff will enjoy learning and be inspired by these new facilities,” Minister Andrews said. “The Australian Government is committed to improving the quality of our schools and equipping students with the skills they need to succeed in an increasingly competitive world.” Media Release
