TAFE SA students have put their carpentry skills to the test by building 10 planter boxes for Marion RSL.

The boxes have been used to house plants donated by RSL members and were installed in front of the clubrooms on Norfolk Rd, Marion in time for ANZAC centenary commemorations in April this year.

The students are all studying Certificate II in Construction Pathways at TAFE SA’s Tonsley campus.

Principal lecturer in carpentry Ian Fuller said creating the planter boxes gave students an important opportunity to use their skills on a real project.

“This project enabled students to pass several of their modules while using their skills in a real life exercise,” Mr Fuller said.
