About The Pine Rivers Memorial Bowls Club.

The Pine Rivers Memorial Bowls Club was formed in 1948 with a small but dedicated membership. Always striving to provide the best facilities to its members and its guests, the club has undergone several facelifts and renovations including, more recently, in 2010 the shade sails being erected over the greens and the multi-story car park being opened in 2016.


The Club also has been a major contributor to the community by supporting local charities, schools, sporting clubs, RSLs and other worthwhile causes including the donation of 2 ambulances to the local station. Now, with a staff base of approximately 100, Club Pine Rivers has come a long way from its modest beginnings on Gympie Road. Hosting national and international bowls events and providing something for everyone, management and staff always strive to offer members and guests the ultimate entertainment experience.



With future renovations to include new restaurants, function rooms, a sports bar, kids club and additional gaming machines, the club is definitely moving with the times.


As their motto goes…Be Surprised!

Why are traineeships such a great opportunity for students?

A Traineeship allows you to gain a nationally recognised qualification by combining employment and training. You learn new skills in your workplace, and you are paid for it! Traineeships provide knowledge and experience relevant to your career and are completed part-time while you finish school.


Mainly designed for Years 10, 11 and 12 students, they allow you to gain real-world experience (and get paid) and work towards a nationally recognised qualification, while completing your high school studies.  Looks great on the resume and gives you a head start if you want to keep working with your venue while you go to university or continue working your way up in the hospitality industry.


What training and roles are available at Club Pine Rivers?

Club Pine Rivers is currently looking for some dedicated Year 11 students to join their school-based traineeship program, with the offer to work, earn and learn while completing a BSB30120 Certificate III in Business.


This qualification reflects the role of individuals in a variety of Business Services job responsibilities. Individuals in these roles carry out a range of routine procedural, clerical, administrative or operational tasks that require technology and business skills. They apply a broad range of competencies using some discretion, judgment, and relevant theoretical knowledge. They may provide technical advice and support to a team.


What Do I Need to Know?

School-based apprenticeships and traineeships (SATs) allow high school students, generally in Years 10, 11 or 12, to work for an employer and train towards a recognised qualification, while completing their secondary schooling and studying for their Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE) or equivalent.


Students must gain support and approval from their school to undertake a SAT. Students continue to attend school as usual, however, some of their paid employment and/or training will become part of their school timetable. A SAT must impact on the student’s school timetable to be considered school based. The ATIS-048 Determining the impact on the school timetable information sheet provides further details.


The school, student, their parent/guardian, employer, and training organisation will negotiate a schedule which outlines when the student is at school, work and training. This schedule must indicate exactly how the SAT will impact the school timetable.


The student and the employer will select a training organisation (known as the supervising registered training organisation) to provide all training and assessment for the SAT. The training organisation will work with the parties to develop a training plan which outlines training needs, how and when the training takes place, who will provide the training, and how the training will be assessed. At CTA, our traineeship has a hospitality pathway so it’s the best of both worlds!
