How Exciting - Buildability Competition

The TradesPath team have now completed their playhouse project for the BCITO Buildability competition. The competition requires teams to design and build a playhouse suitable for small children. They have been working hard together to create this workshop playhouse which will be donated to Somerville Kindergarten.


The winning team will be decided by public vote; please help the Howick College Trades team by voting online for their workshop playhouse.

Voting opens Saturday 15 Aug and closes Friday September 4.
