An immersive course at the Chippendale school involves a great deal of hard work…for most of the time.
But we also like to mix hard work with fun because what we learn with pleasure we never forget.
For example, being an international school, we celebrate the various festivals and national days that are commemorated in each of our students’ own countries.
We not only like to make everyone feel welcome, we use these occasions to learn more about each other’s cultures.
But one festival we can all celebrate is Christmas and every year staff and students come together in the school for a turkey-and-all-the-trimmings lunch.
It’s also fitting that, in training to be woodworkers, we are also remembering the son of a carpenter.
And, as trained or trainee carpenters, we can also remember Saint Joseph, Jesus’ father, the patron saint of cabinetmakers.
