Charitable students bake biscuits for new café

The All Saints’ College community have devoured delicious baked goods made by our students at the newly opened Wanju Café (Noongar for ‘welcome’).

Students in Years 8 and 9 have been busy baking after school throughout Term 1, all in the name of charity.

Under the leadership of Home Economics teacher, Mrs Kaye Johns, the students baked hundreds of biscuits and raised an impressive $700 for the Disabled Surfers Association of Australia.

The students chose the DSA charity following a recent event at Leighton Beach, where 22 All Saints’ students and staff volunteered their time to help people with disabilities in the surf.

Mrs Johns said the students were involved in every stage of the process, developing procedures such as baking and packaging.

“This new initiative has at times been challenging, due to the fact that many students are new to baking and haven’t used the equipment before,” she said.

Following a successful outcome and overwhelming support from the community, Mrs Johns said the project will continue in Term 2.

Years 11 and 12 Home Economics students were also in a fundraising spirit. They baked slices, muffins, cupcakes and biscuits which are also for sale at the café.

In Term 2, these senior students will have the opportunity to receive hands-on experience by learning how to correctly greet customers and serve in the café.

The College supports our students in all learning areas and the new café is another opportunity for our Home Economics students to further their knowledge.

The new café is open to the wider community and is currently open on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 8.00am – 10.00am.

We look forward to seeing you at Wanju!
