    Western Australian TAFE students will have state of the art equipment for their studies following a donation of 25 new vehicles by Daihatsu Australia.
     
    Education and Training Minister Kay Hallahan said the latest model Daihatsu cars would be distributed to TAFE campuses around the State for training purposes.
     
    In a handover ceremony at Canning Vale today, Mrs Hallahan received the keys to the vehicles from Daihatsu State Manager Gary Johnston.
     
    The Minister said the 25 cars for WA were part of a national donation of 250 cars - the largest corporate donation of its kind.
     
    "Western Australian TAFE students will be the big winners from this generous gesture by Daihatsu as they will have first-hand experience of the latest in vehicle technology," she said.
     
    "Daihatsu has demonstrated one way that the corporate sector can contribute to the development of a highly skilled and competitive workforce."
     
    The vehicles - which have been damaged in transit and cannot be registered in Australia - could have been exported for sale in overseas markets.
