STUDENTS from the Support Classes at Irrawang High School have been working on a big project on the school farm for a considerable time now and have finally begun to reap the rewards of their hard work, and the fruits of their labour so to speak.

These dedicated students have been hard at work in their garden up on the school farm, planting, watering, cultivating and harvesting the most beautiful array of fresh vegetables.
This week the students, along with assistance from their Student Learning Support Officer Mrs Lilley, harvested, cleaned, weighed, sorted and bagged/banded the vegetables into bunches for sale to appreciative school staff.
Aside from the pride in producing such a great crop, the students are learning social and interpersonal skills as they deal with each other and staff in a positive way.
They are developing teamwork skills, and using maths and marketing in real life situations.
Mrs Lilley commented, ”It is a big bonus to produce these vegetables for staff, as all funds raised help to subsidise rewards days for the students.”
School representative Lue Fagan added, “Thanks students, we are going to enjoy your fresh veges this weekend!”
“Well done on all your hard work.”
