Construction Industry Career Day

Following the tragic death of 10 pupils in a road accident some two or three weeks ago, KwaZulu-Natal Education MEC Senzo Mchunu’s announced the abandonment of all school trips for the rest of the year.

With high school learners having had to be bussed in, the MEC's stance has adversely affected the Association’s plan to host a Construction Industry Career Day. Not to be deterred, many of the Schools that were going to attend have welcomed the option of us going to them. The positive outcome is that we will be able to reach more pupils, the downside is, we had some really exciting activities planned which will have to be shelved, as the transporting of heavy equipment just isn’t practical.

Nonetheless, the enthusiasm the schools are showing for it is most welcoming and albeit that there had to be a change of tack, we are looking forward it and believe it will be just as much of a success.
