Many or our students are extraordinary musicians and artists, and a tribute to the music department where their talents and their interests are nourished with expertise and enthusiasm. During Spring Fair this year we were once again entertained by out students, to the delight of their peers, family and friends.
In woodcraft the students in Grade 9 have designed and worked on a wall clock. The aim of the project was to achive accuracy in symmetry when working with wood and a professional finish with varnish or paint. A great many of the pieces were fantastic!
The students learned the process of tailoring pants from a commercial pattern, including washing fabric, copying a pattern to paper then fabric, measuring, seams, cutting fabric and sewing machine techniques. The final touch was to embroider a pocket with a motive inspired by a culture.

In textile crafts the Grade 7 students have been working with different yarn projects. It was specially fun was to see all kinds of different Amigurumi: bears, monkeys, fruits and vegetables. Amigurumi means crocheted soft toys in Japanese and this is a very popular handcraft now days, appreciated by all ages.
