Two Finley TAFE students were awarded $250 each by the Berrigan Shire Council last Wednesday.
Finley resident Michelle Bromfield and Barooga resident Kittiya Ardtaisong are both studying Individual Support Certificate III specialising in age care.
Both students said they are studying age care as they enjoy providing comfort to older people.
‘‘We can’t forget older people,’’ Miss Bromfield said.
‘‘I’ve always enjoyed looking after the elderly and learning about their lives and the stories they have to tell.
‘‘Making sure someone is looked after, treating them with respect and dignity is important to me.’’
The students can spend the shire funding how they please.
Mayor Matt Hannan said the council offers $500 every year to Finley TAFE.
‘‘Council likes to support our TAFE students,’’ he said.
‘‘TAFE is an important resource for not only Finley but the rest of the Berrigan Shire.
‘‘We wish the students all the best with their future endeavours, whatever that may be.’’
