We were delighted to offer scholarships to two promising students from the Manurewa High School Trades Academy.
The partnership came about when we were managing a build at Manurewa High School. Contracts manager Luke Luijten, who got his own start in the industry through a scholarship, saw the potential in the trades students and wanted to pay it forward.
One of the students, Ayush, will go straight from Year 12 to study project management and quantity surveying at Massey University, and the other, Avish, will be following his father into the construction industry.
The scholarships include $3,000 towards course costs, employment during holidays, and, assuming all goes well, a permanent position with Naylor Love upon graduation.
Thanks to the Education Gazette for the photo of Luke and Ayush. Read the full article here.
