In Food and Textiles it’s all about community connections. Through the use of personal pedagogy, students are learning through engaging in real-world activities that create a sense of pride and self-worth within the classroom. By blending classroom skills with communities, we are enhancing student’s ability to take ownership of a task and challenge existing knowledge with new and engaging ways of learning.
Senior Hospitality students are producing Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea; all money raised will be going to the Cancer Council. Year 7 students are producing Boomerang Bags. In consultation with both classes, I’m happy to confirm that these bags are to be given to Rockhampton Food Bank at the end of term.
Year 8 to 10 students are busy creating pillow cases for Ronald McDonald House Charities South East Queensland (RMH) in Brisbane. Year 8 students produce two pillow cases, one for RMH and the other matching case is for their use. Year 9 – 10 create the pillow case for RMH and another matching item. Designing something that engages creativity and imagination – this second item is for them to take home, there has been some wonderful skirts, tops, pencil cases etc created.
