TAMWORTH TAFE STUDENT TAKES HOME A WORLDSKILLS SILVER MEDAL
Tamworth TAFE NSW student Dayna Moyses received a silver medal at the WorldSkills Australia 2018 National Championships in Sydney on the weekend.
In front of hundreds of her peers from across the country, Dayna finished runner-up in the cookery category of the competition.
Member for Tamworth, Kevin Anderson said Dayna was one of three TAFE NSW Tamworth students at the WorldSkills national finals.
“I am thrilled to see local students like Dayna from the public VET provider receive these accolades.
“TAFE NSW students are in high demand because of the quality of their education and ability to hit the ground running with relevant and practical skills.
“We are delivering on a vision for a strong and publicly owned VET provider through its One TAFE NSW reforms.
“Dayna was accompanied by Uralla’s Courtney Baldwin (Hairdressing) and Tintinhull’s Cody Donnelly (Heavy Vehicle Mechanics).
“Courtney won gold and will be packing her bags for a trip to Russia.
“Congratulations to Courtney and Dayna and all winners and I look forward to seeing more TAFE NSW students recognised for their achievements in the future,” Mr Anderson concluded.
Dayna said the competition was a challenging experience.
“I’d been training very hard for this competition and believed it would have been just amazing to win nationals and be given the opportunity to represent Australia in Russia, but I am still thrilled with my silver medal.
“It made me work to the best of my ability by thinking outside the box and choosing the right skills to showcase,” Dayna concluded.
