Year 12 Food Science and Nutrition. 

Our students were challenged to create and present a pasta dish using our new spinach, beetroot and tomato powders.  Well done year 12 we loved the results. The new additions to our Food Department pantry will be well used over the coming months.

MTC Engineering Apprenticeships

Apprenticeships combine practical, on-the-job training with studying towards a nationally recognised qualification. There are many reasons to do an apprenticeship – you can earn while you learn, work alongside experienced staff, gain job-specific skills and get time for study related to your role. The MTC connects those who are interested in apprenticeships with high calibre manufacturing and engineering employers who are looking to employ the best talent in the industry.

Year 12 Sociology

Year 12 Sociology students have been putting their knowledge into practice today.

Their first task was to role play a capitalist society, drawing upon what they have recently learnt about Marxism. Students were given a job role as either owners of businesses or workers. Owners gave their demands and paid their workers in sweets for their labour. In the second task they had to create a playdoh structure based on Marxism or Postmodernism.

This was enjoyed by all and lots of creative flair was demonstrated.

Fantastic effort and contributions today.Well done,Mrs Southworth
