The event was attended by over 120 members of the community who also enjoyed a morning tea prepared and served by the Integrated Learning Catering Class. The students chose recipes in line with Nutrition Australia guidelines for maximum nutrition in small portions and followed a defined catering budget.
The morning also showcased an exhibition by Year 10-12 Art Practical, Photography and Design students. Guests were impressed with a wide variety of works including painting, reduction lino cuts, watercolours and acrylic, macro photography, fashion and product design.
