As a part of the science curriculum students in all of the classes work to support the development of the kitchen garden. Students plan the items for planting and work together to maintain and nurture the plants to full growth and ready for harvest. Once the produce is ready for eating students work this into the menu in their food technology lessons.
As students progress into their senior years at high school they are encouraged to engage in activities that foster and develop their independence as well as their social skills within real life situations. These courses are not mandatory but do provide a relevant and appropriate pathway for many students.
As students move into Year 11 & Year 12 they have an option of applying to study a TAFE course at one of the campuses across Sydney.
Application for these courses is done in consultation with the school to ensure the most appropriate pathway is selected. Students whose application is successful will have the chance to study off-site for one day per week.
Studying a TAFE course off-site provides a great opportunity for students to develop independence and build friendships from outside of the school environment
