focus, systems, routines, solid work habits, safety and
hygiene practises, developing consistent quality of
pace and performance.
We have developed a contextual environment
that assesses learners on practical observation
and naturally occurring evidence with all unit
standards including industry literacy and
numeracy skill development.
Success through competence and confidence
develops self-esteem and a sense of direction. We
use a Pathway Action Plan designed so individual
learners can take their own responsibility for long-
term goals and aspirations.
We have operated a registered café/ restaurant
for many years.
Our café is open to the public every Thursday of
the school terms, offering learners the real life daily
skills required, by industry.
