Great things are brew­ing

Southern Telegraph - - Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea - Emily Sharp

Stu­dents from Warn­bro Ed­u­ca­tion Sup­port Cen­tre brewed up a storm last Thurs­day to raise money for Aus­tralia’s Big­gest Morn­ing Tea at Class 1 Orthodon­tics.

Mad­die Ros­son, Bray­den Reed and Lach­lan Curry made sev­eral cups of cof­fee, tea and hot choco­late as well as cup­cakes.

Class 1 Orthodon­tics mar­ket­ing co-or­di­na­tor Alexan­dra Burges said staff were very ex­cited and had be­come re­ally in­volved in the day.

“We are now think­ing of sup­port­ing a dif­fer­ent char­ity once a month, such as Sids for Kids Day and Jeans for Genes day due to the suc­cess of this morn­ing tea,” she said. “It’s a won­der­ful way of giv­ing back to the com­mu­nity and we would like to con­tinue the col­lab­o­ra­tion with Warn­bro Ed­u­ca­tion Sup­port Cen­tre.”

Stu­dents have be­come a reg­u­lar fea­ture of Tues­day morn­ings at Class 1 Orthodon­tics, mak­ing cof­fees for staff mem­bers and pa­tients for the past two years.

Mad­die, 15, Bray­den and Lach­lan, both 18, are three of many stu­dents who reg­u­larly work at the cafe to prac­tise their barista and busi­ness skills.

Work­place tran­si­tion co-or­di­na­tor Jac­qui Jones said it was a won­der­ful on­go­ing col­lab­o­ra­tion that en­abled stu­dents to learn in a safe and sup­port­ive en­vi­ron­ment.

“The morn­ing tea was a spe­cial one and a great suc­cess, as is the pro­gram, with many stu­dents go­ing on to get paid work,” she said.
