Students have hours of fun with hobbies
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.
