On Tuesday 2 August, our Year 11 VCAL students held their Personal Best Showcase in McAuley Hall. Parents and friends were provided the opportunity to come to the College to see the students’ work on display and enjoy a hot drink from the Catherine’s Cafe van. Proud students took the time to share the purpose behind their project and chatted happily with guests.
The Personal Best projects are run throughout Term 2 for the Year 11 Applied Learning students (VCAL). The Personal Best project allows students to undertake an activity on something that is important to them. They are given the opportunity to work with a mentor to assist them to design, plan and produce a project of their choice. These activities also enable students to refine interpersonal and employability skills by creating a presentation to be delivered to the cohort and creating a visual folio.
This year some projects included resin tables, a cubby house, dog kennel, recipe books with videos, re-built motors, a handmade guitar, tennis racquet and many more amazing projects. Well done to all the students for their time and effort put into these projects.
