  • Jeremy Forbes from HALT - Hope Assistance for Local Tradies - came and had a chat to our Electrotechnology students yesterday about #mentalhealth and #wellbeing. Jeremy is reaching out to tradespeople, young and old, trying to prevent more tragedies like what he has seen in his mates who have taken their own lives. His message is that stress and overwhelm can and will happen to all of us, and when that happens to you, reach out. Phone a mate or a valued family member, ring Lifeline North Coast - NSW or take advantage of the counselling services available in your community, such as Port Macquarie TAFE's in-house counselling team. #youarenotalone #suicideprevention #beyondblue

She won hairdressing gold at the Australian National Worldskills competition at the end of last year - and now she's busy training, traveling and fundraising to prepare for the international Worldskills competition in Abu Dhabi in just a few months time. This Sunday, Gaby will be at Port Macquarie Bunnings cooking up a storm behind the BBQ, so go down and show her some love <3. #worldskills #hairdressing #tafensw #portmacquarie
