Bees wax re-usable wrapping  

The Technology Department held a Bees Wax Reusable Wrap workshop in the Textiles room on Wednesday 21 August. We had an amazing turn out with students from year 7 and year 12. We infused printed cotton fabric with bee wax using an iron. These wraps will last between 6-12 months and are a sustainable alternative to cling wrap. As bees wax wraps allow food to breath it can also keep your food fresher! We were amazed by the turnout of students and will be running another work shop in Term 4 due to high demand. It was amazing to see students helping each other and talking passionately about their creativity and desire to live a sustainable lifestyle.

One of our favourite recipes when time is short is bruschetta. Technically bruschetta refers to the way the bread is prepared rather than the topping, however there are now endless types of bruschetta that demonstrate to the students the WOW factor that can be obtained from a few fresh ingredients.

The beauty of any bruschetta recipe lies in the simple combination of fresh ingredients. and the punch of flavour is even better than licking  the sprinkle of chemicals off a BBQ shape!!!

Enjoy some photos of our lovely 8E students.
