It’s been a busy month here at Smiths. In partnership with The Skills Organization and Ideal Electrical, we ran a competition to award apprentice electricians with prizes that would help them in their future careers. Our proud winners were Connor Gotty, Rochelle Arnold and Hannah Todd.

The prize giving, which was covered by local media, had a great turnout and was a very successful day with members from Skills and Ideal Electrical in attendance. Getting to meet the winners was a wonderful experience for all the team at Smiths. It’s important for us to acknowledge the financial challenges apprentices can go through on their journey to being certified and help in any way we can. The winners were most deserving and are great mascots for the next generation of electricians.

We would like to say a big thank you to all the apprentices who entered. Taking the time to submit an entry shows great character and we’re sure you’ll go on to be successful in your chosen careers. We plan on running the competition again next year, so please make sure to enter!

Finally, congratulations to Lana McLean of Corys in Rangiroa on winning the $100 Liquorland gift card. Enjoy Lana!
