Apprentice of the Year

Updated: Aug 29, 2022

We are super thrilled to announce that our now qualified apprentice Santa Gurung won the Master Builders Apprentice of the Year in Far North Queensland.

Santa who surived 3 years in prison at just 17 years of age and then 26 years in a refugee camp has turned his life around. He has built himself a beautiful life for himself and family here in Cairns.

To see him win the Master Builders Apprentice of the Year is just such a heart warming moment. An award that he is truly deserving of and an award that will inspire many people to reach for the stars.
