New apprentice Jason Donovan admitted when he came on-site four weeks ago for his first day on the job, he was a little overwhelmed. It's not just any site. It might just be the biggest infrastructure project in the country. "When we first walked in it was a big eye-opener," Mr Donovan said. "But I'm pretty stoked now to be on such a big project." "Meeting all the guys has been pretty cool - they help us out and we learn something every day." Mr Donovan is one of six young local Aboriginals who have begun work on construction of Grafton's Clarence Correctional Centre after securing apprenticeships with Laser Plumbing and Electrical. Their new boss, managing director Steven Campbell, said he remembered exactly how it felt starting out.
