VET in School Student of the Year

Sponsored by ConocoPhillips.

Winner: Tré Manning-Watson - Certificate III in Fitness

School: Darwin High School
Registered training provider: Charles Darwin University

Tré Manning-Watson’s ambition to become a Federal fire fighter led him to enrol in a Certificate III in Fitness through Darwin High in 2012.

Tré’s work placements describe him as dedicated and committed. He attended extra sessions outside the VET timetable to achieve his group fitness specialisation and is working towards his Certificate IV in Fitness while completing year 12.

In 2012 Tré won the NTCE VET in Schools Award and Outstanding VET in Schools Student Award - Certificate II Fitness. He is rightly proud of his achievement in being one of the first students from Darwin High to complete his NTCET by the end of year 11.

He is also a talented musician and earns extra money busking.

Tré’s motto is ‘train insane or remain the same’ - with this commitment and drive he continues to work towards his goals of increasing his own and other’s physical fitness and becoming a fire fighter.
