Skill Hire Indulkana Community Day

Why we organised a special day in the Indulkana community

Last month, Skill Hire staff organised a Community Day in Indulkana which involved sports and activities for children, instruments and a stage for bands to play music and a BBQ dinner. The day was run by staff from Skill Hire with assistance from the SANFL and Woodville-West Torrens Eagles Football Club players and staff members.

The day provided an opportunity for the community to get together as well as continue to build the relationship between the Eagles, Skill Hire and the community. The FNWSL football season was due to kick off the following day with a double header in Indulkana so there was a bit of a buzz around the area.

Vicky, Emma, Peter and David from Skill Hire provided food and drinks for everyone near the stage. As the afternoon went on more and more of the local men began to filter through and play music.

Shelby from the SANFL Indigenous Program took the younger girls to play netball at Indulkana School while Luke Powell, Matthew Goldsworthy, Paul Stewart and Jared Petrenko from the Eagles took the younger males for a kick of the football down at the Indulkana Oval. With the football season about to start, the guys were certainly up and about.

With the inflatable goals and bouncing castle up for most of the day, the kids looked to be having loads of fun and showed plenty of acrobatic and football skills.

To close out the evening, everyone was able to tuck into sausages and bread after what had been a great day of engaging the people in the community.

The following day the Community Day organisers from Skill Hire and the Eagles headed back to Indulkana to watch the beginning of the FNWSL football. We felt that the response and interaction from the kids and Indulkana football team on this day were a great indication that the community day was a success.

  • All students enjoyed their time at Skill Hire very much. Students were excited to see the end result, but were just as excited to demolish it!

    (These students recently took part in a three day Try-A-Trade course at Skill Hire, funded by the Construction Training Fund)

  • A HUGE thank you for organising the Try-A-Trade for our students. All three teachers have come back to school absolutely buzzing about what the boys achieved in those three days and what a fantastic program it is. They also said the trainer was amazing and worked so well with the boys. It has taken me two years to get just one of these off the ground and am hoping this may be something we can try every year.

    Thank you so much and can you please pass on my thanks to the Trainer.

  • Working with Skill Hire was an absolute joy! Our students enjoyed an unsurpassed opportunity to learn and develop skills that supported their career aspirations. Trainer, Wayne Sutherland managed a full team of 15 students with ease and aplomb! The opportunity to engage with on-site works meant that our students have now had a real experience of these trades and feel more confident in their ability to succeed. A few students are keen to continue their trade studies with Skillhire and we wish them all the very best. Thankyou so much for the opportunity to take part in Try-A-Trade and SOP
