Co-ed baking fun in joint initiative from Green & Pres
ROLES were reversed for students at CBS The Green and at Presentation Secondary School last week as the boys got to grips with the basics of Home Economics while the girls learnt all about Construction Studies.
The boys swapped the saws, chisels and sandpaper for rolling pins, aprons and flour covered faces as they tried their hand at making their own pizzas - all with a little helping hand from some of their Presentation counterparts of course.
The ladies meanwhile were kept quite busy designing and making starts on their construction projects.
The innovative cross-over is the result of hard work behind the scenes by Anne O’Callaghan, Mark Ryall and Robert Flaherty from CBS The Green and Chrissie Kelly, Ann O’Mahony, Sandra Moore from Presentation.
The aim of the project between the neighbouring schools was to explore the possibility of broadening the choice of subjects on offer for the students.
“The students in both schools are clearly delighted with the new initiative and are very positive at being given the opportunity to engage in subjects that otherwise would not be available to them,” CBS The Green Deputy Principal Robert Flaherty said.
“It is clear from the reports from both teachers and students that this collaborative project is working to the benefit of the students from both schools,” he continued.
With such success being reported from both sides, it’s no surprise at all to hear that the initiative is set to be expanded for the benefit of more students in the coming years.
