Sky is the limit for space students

PALM Beach Currumbin State High School students were among nine students State-wide that received awards for their excellence in aerospace education.

The two students, Brock Little and Michael Donoghue, were awarded Aerospace Education Awards at Parliament House in Brisbane last week.

Brock won the Brisbane Airport Corporation Year 11 Aerospace Studies Award and Michael was one of the two who won the Guild of Air Pilots and Air Navigators Prize.

Employment and Skills Minister Stirling Hinchliffe said Palm Beach Currumbin State High became one of the 23 Aerospace Project Gateway Schools in Queensland this year.

"The schools are giving students the skills, knowledge and insight to join the aerospace and aviation industries," he said.

"Across Queensland there are now more than 700 senior students enrolled in aerospace-related subjects at Gateway Schools.

"The Aerospace Project is creating pathways into industries which employ more than 16,000 Queenslanders."
