A Night at the 13th Annual Wirrpanda Dinner

Thursday the 13th of October was an exciting night for several of our staff, who had the pleasure of attending the Annual Wirrpanda Foundation Fundraising Dinner held at Frasers function centre. The annual dinner, now in its thirteenth year, was a fantastic showcase of what the Wirrpanda foundation had achieved throughout 2018.

While Skill Hire has the honour of working closely with the Wirrpanda foundation, it was great to see the organisation be able to show the community, the progress made in improving the quality of life for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians.

A Night at the 13th Annual Wirrpanda DinnerWith the night hosted by Shannon McGuire and Troy Cook, we let our hair down, enjoyed the delicious food and soaked up the entertaining antics of Peter Rowsthorn and Tiny Holly. However, it wasn’t only fine dining and fantastic entertainment, the guests in attendance were able to fundraise an impressive $80,000 for the foundation!

On behalf of the staff at Skill Hire, we want to offer big congratulations for the fantastic outcome and look forward to seeing the great achievements made by the Wirrpanda Foundation in the years to come!

We are counting down to the next annual fundraising dinner for the Wirrpanda Foundation!

Skill Hire really helped me to see that I can accomplish something if I set my mind to it and I completed my course 2 months prior to the completion date. Cheers guys!


Skill Hire are helpful and professional. Nicola was attentive to all my needs. Their timesheets systems were a breeze and always update us with messages. Thanks Skill Hire


I just wanted to thank Skill Hire's EST Trainers. Nathan is the absolute best trainer I’ve ever had privilege to meet by a WIDE margin and I appreciate everything done for all of us. I’m ecstatic about the internship opportunity.


Not only did Skill Hire respond quickly to our urgent need, your team took the time to understand our organization and our needs. The people sent to help out were outstanding and their ability to rapidly adapt to our workplace eased our burden during what was a very challenging few months.


My son has thoroughly enjoyed the Construction Pathways course. He spent the last 18 months being home schooled and not socializing with anyone so to see him eager to get up and leave the house every day still blows my mind. Simon, thank you for your understanding and taking extra care with my son.


I wanted to say a big thank you to Skill Hire and the team, especially Wayne for such an amazing experience for our students. All of our students were thoroughly engaged with the course and learned many valuable skills.
