Our focus this month in Home Economics kitchen is the family and here we have Rebecca with her lovely gingerbread family - she even made one for her dog Lily!
Sean Paul made four large biscuits representing his family - some are happy, some are talking but most importantly - they will all taste delicious!
Just like Leah herself, her gingerbread family, look fabulous!
Everyone in Sean's gingerbread family is smiling and I bet when he got home with these beauties, everyone was smiling waiting for a taste !
Paul made enough for his family and the neighbours, Bridie and Gerry. How about that?
Patricia is so proud of her lovely gingerbread family - all blue eyed beauties!
Congratulation to everyone who made and decorated their gingerbread families so nicely. I could only feature a few but they all turned out lovely. Well done!!
In our photo we have Zenon, Fidelm, Marc, Rachel and Grace. Fidelm and Rachel have been admiring the lovely craft pictures made by Zenon, Marc and Grace for Level 2. All the crafts were made using buttons, beads, fabrics, felt and stickers and all had a theme of our love for our mums. They turned out great and I hope the mums who receive them think they are just fabulous!
To celebrate the arrival of spring and to reflect the lovely flowers now starting to peep out at this time of year, our students are making chocolate chip fairy cakes, decorated with a flower theme. Our first pictures show Grace, Zenon and Marc making the buns themselves --- then wait for the decoration pictures below!!
Now for the decorations !! - Dylan, Christopher and Calvin show you their finished products ready for home. They turned out really nicely so well done everyone involved.

Three more Oak pupils take home their lovely Christmas Cakes. Pictured are Sean, Nicole and Leah who did great work to get their cakes decorated, ready for home yesterday.
