Stu­dents have hours of fun with hob­bies

The Cobram Courier - - NEWS -

Strath­mer­ton Pri­mary School stu­dents have been spend­ing Fri­day af­ter­noons do­ing an ar­ray of hob­bies as part of ‘Happy Hobby Hour’.

The hob­bies have in­cluded bowls, fish­ing, sewing, cook­ing, art, cod­ing, drama and gar­den­ing.

‘‘The idea was to in­tro­duce the stu­dents to ac­tiv­i­ties that they could do in their leisure time,’’ Strath­mer­ton Pri­mary School teacher Rachel Ol­son said.

‘‘The ac­tiv­i­ties in­clude in­door and out­door hob­bies that should help the stu­dents make good choices now and in the fu­ture of dif­fer­ent ways to spend spare time,’’ she said.

Year 4 stu­dent Jai Stephens par­tic­i­pated in cook­ing with lo­cal chef Rachel Payne and said, ‘‘the best part was cook­ing with my friends and eat­ing yummy food’’.

The stu­dents will get the op­por­tu­nity to choose an­other hobby for five Fri­days in term four.

Culi­nary whizzes: Harry Barnes, Herc Hunter, Jai Stephens, Ne­vaeh Webb, Noah Beurs, Jazzmyn Safe, El­lie Kar­natz and Con­nor Cic­cone get to work in the kitchen.

Cod­ing champs: Nick Har­ri­son and Elisha McCombes brush up on their com­puter skills.
