Carl Tuvae

Class of: 2004
School: De La Salle College
Scholarship Partner: Fletcher Construction
While at school this outstanding all-rounder displayed a positive attitude towards learning and towards his peers. In his Yr 11 he showed particular strengths in Graphics and Design. In his Yr 12 his diligence and capability was recognised with a chance to participate in the school-based Lion Nathan Business Experience programme.

During his scholarship Carl thrived on work experience with Fletcher Construction.  He states: "The chance to be on a number of sites and to see and learn about construction from the ground up and to see the beginning and end of the building process has been exciting and valuable." Now, having completed the First Foundation programme, Carl values the continued support and professional development which he is offered through his current position at Placemakers in Mt Wellington.

Carl has been studying a Bachelor of Science at The University of Auckland.  A young man with big aspirations, he looks forward to the completion of his degree and the potential of travelling and working overseas.
