Alyssa McDonald - Childcare Apprentice (with kids2)

Alyssa McDonald – Early Childcare Trainee

“I was born and raised in the Southern Highlands. I love the sense of community and the climate here. The apprenticeship through Hume Coal has been very beneficial. It’s a good foundation for what I want to do in the future.

I would have left the Highlands to find work if nothing else came up in the area, so this opportunity provided by Hume Coal has enabled me to stay and work in the area, which is great.”


Karen Hayes – Director, KU Donkin Memorial Preschool

“We are thankful for the opportunity to have Hume Coal supporting our preschool. The apprenticeship program has enabled us to take on new staff; supporting the early education of children from our local community.”
