Mighty Mouse

Adam, or Mighty Mouse as everyone calls him, is in his 2nd year as an apprentice at Dianella Polishing. He came to us when he was in year 12, after starting a furniture finishing program at TAFE.


Adam started sanding, then soon went on to undercoating. He has recently moved up to the enclosed spray booths. That’s quite an accomplishment for a 2nd year apprentice. He’s the only student in his class working in a spray booth; his classmates are still sanding or undercoating.


We had an opportunity to pry Adam from the spray booth to ask him a few questions.


Q: “Why did you decide to study at TAFE and get an apprenticeship?”

Adam: “I couldn’t deal with school … there was too much control. I wanted to be treated with respect.”


Mighty Mouse AdamQ: “What’s the most important thing you’ve learned here?”

Adam: “I learned that prepping is the most important part of my job.”


Q: “What’s the best part of the job?”

Adam: “Finishing. I like being in the booth.”


Q: “What do you want to do in the future?”

Adam: “I want to keep spraying in the future — maybe cars.”

Adam says his family was proud when they learned he got an apprenticeship at Dianella Polishing. He plans on being at Dianella Polishing for a while still.

When not in the spray booth, Adam likes to hang with his mates and ride dirt bikes. Why is he called Mighty Mouse? Well, you’ll just have to ask him yourself.
