Automotive students' mechanical ingenuity was given pride of place this weekend as CedarBridge Academy hosted its first pro shop fair.

The event, which had been co-ordinated by the school and Noble Auto, showcased a group of pupils' work on vehicles of all shapes and sizes.

Michael Dunkley, the Premier, along with scores of other motoring enthusiasts attended the fair to see the fruits of their labours, such as work to revamp hot rod and vintage cars.

The fair was designed to promote the automotive career paths available for study at the school and included displays by the police and fire departments.

It was the first event of its kind at the school and also featured a rather special display — a three-wheel disability scooter — that students repaired and modified for senior Owen Lindsay.
