Over the past two terms while the Year 7 members of our class have been at Tech we have been participating in a Student Volunteer Army initiative. As part of this programme we have identified who volunteers are within our community, what they do and what they mean to us. We have then thought about how we could be more involved in our community. We came up with three things that we wanted to be part of - helping out at the local rest home, the local kindergarten and cleaning up Boyd Park.
On Tuesday 21st November we spent the morning baking goodies to take with us over to Lawrence House in the afternoon. We had a great time baking a range of goodies - Gingernut Crunch, Chocolate Truffles, Chocolate Chip Biscuits, and Chocolate Brownie, and spending time reading and talking with the residents at the rest home.
It was lovely to see so many happy faces. We look forward to going back next week and doing some Christmas Art together.
