Swinburne apprentices help build new school in India

A team of advanced building, carpentry and plumbing apprentices spent two weeks in India helping to build a school. The school will improve the lives of students and teachers in the remote community village of Jamnya.

The seven apprentices, and their supervisor, from Swinburne’s Department of Trades and Engineering Technology built the new accommodation.

The new living quarters include hygienic household water management and effluent treatment systems. Small-scale renewable energy systems also provide a consistent, reliable power source for lighting, heating and cooking.
