Teaching at Drummond

Fortnightly classes are available at Drummond. All fortnightly classes occur every month, in most months they are the 1st and 3rd week aside from the dates listed under the Teaching at Sturt School for Wood section.

To ensure a smooth transition into fortnightly classes it is advisable that new students have completed one to the intensives. This gives me an opportunity to make sure your OH&S and machine training has been thoroughly covered.

Guest teachers will be added with specific courses very soon!!
