SIDE’S Mini Industry Roadshow recently embarked on an exciting careers tour to the picturesque Kimberley region of Western Australia, visiting Kalumburu Remote Community School, as well as Purnululu School and Ngalangangpum School in the Warmun region.

Kalumburu meaning ‘Path by the River’ or ‘River Crossing’ is the most northerly Aboriginal Community in Western Australia. It is situated on the banks of the King Edward River besides a long, deep billabong at the upriver end of Malindjar Gorge. Warmun is part of the stunningly beautiful Bungle Bungle Range of National and World Heritage-listed Purnululu National Park.

The tour provided first-class industry skills training to the students from

The workshops delved into various fields, enabling students to explore innovative technologies and industries through the delivery of hands-on experience and interactive learning. The Mini Industry Roadshow featured a diverse line-up of professionals who shared their career insights and skills with eager students.

SIDE trainers led an engaging, hands-on session that gave insight on the world of plumbing and the benefits of trade training. Students learned practical skills that they could utilize immediately in their communities. They gained a newfound appreciation for skilled trades and the essential role they play in a successful and happy community.

Cabinetry in Schools introduced the students to the stunning artistry of woodwork allowing budding craftspeople to sharpen their trade skills by working on hands-on cabinetry projects. The students not only crafted tangible items but also developed an appreciation for the craftsmanship.

A very talented and inspiring Leon Ewing explored sound engineering and music creation with students. Leon gave the students a wonderful opportunity to experience the wide varieties of pathways sound engineering can lead to. The students had enormous fun producing and developing their own songs.

The East Kimberley Mini Industry Roadshow was an outstanding success, leaving students inspired and informed about their future career paths. Such initiatives play a pivotal role in shaping students into well-rounded individuals. By collaborating with notable organisations and professionals, SIDE ensured that students in remote and regional communities have access to high-quality educational and career exposure.
