The garden has over 40 local bush food and medicine plants which were planted last term by students in the Arrernte classes. The garden will be used by students studying Arrernte across Alice Springs to learn about the different local plants and their uses. It was beautiful ceremony to honour a remarkable woman. Vocational Education and Training What a term it has been for the VET hospitality programs. The students from semester one continued their learning with another skill set of serving customers and making sandwiches. We also had the pleasure of meeting a new second group of students starting their Hospitality Skill Set in coffee making. The new group of students have been focusing on honing their skills working towards understanding the concepts of good personal hygiene, food hygiene safety, basic legislation of the industry and cooking skills. Moving into term 4 they will be starting on their coffee learning to become some of Alice Springs latest Baristas. We have an eventful term to come where the students will be setting up a mini caf to make all different types of coffees to their customers. The continuing students have been working tirelessly learning about front of house customer service, and making all sorts of different types of sandwiches. To start the term off the students had to create an event, they had a meetings in the classroom to discuss what they were planning and create a small folder with their plan in it (including maps, flyers and leaflets). Executing the events was a big deal, with some real industry feelings of pressure and stress. At service time all the students of the class came together, put their focusing chef hats on and got the job done. The students catered for the staff at the sports carnival, and have done several small services in the staff room making lunches. Well done! Check out some pictures of the term so far! Transition visit Ross Park Our transition visits have continued, supporting Year 6s to feel confident about making the jump to the middle school. Last week we loved having the Ross Park students across, and look forward to having all of the Year 6s at CMS next year. Year 7 We have had a great time in the CMS kitchen this term with 7.1, lots of experimentation, creativity and great results!! Well done 7.1 for your outstanding effort. Year 7 students also baked chocolate muffins in their Maths lesson to demonstrate their understanding of fractions! We had a great time and learned how maths is used in real life! Year 7 Glow Party What a fun time we all had! Year 9 - Wellbeing Workshop with Centralian Senior College The Centralian Senior College Wellbeing Team is continuing to run some really fun workshops with our Year 9 students as part of their transition into Year 10. Here are some more photos for you to enjoy! As a part of supporting our students to transition successfully to Year 10, we are exposing them to a range of options for continuing their learning journey. We took a group of students to Outcomes last week. It was great for them to understand the learning pathways provided there. 2
