Award winning apprentice

OFTEN we hear of former local students going on to achieve great things after their strong start in Bombala, and now we can add another success story to the list!

Chris Tummons, who finished up at Bombala High School in 2009, has just been awarded the Master Builder’s First Year Apprentice of the Year Award.

Chris has been completing a plumbing apprenticeship in Canberra through Master Builders, and as the award illustrates, is clearly excelling at it.

There were 200 other first year apprentices up for the award within the company, giving an indication of just how big an achievement Chris has made.

And fortunately for us, Chris hopes to eventually return to the local area to work as a fully qualified plumber.
