New joint ven­ture to share col­lege tal­ent

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

A joint ven­ture be­tween Mata­mata Col­lege, Mata­mata New World and the Mata­mata Chron­i­cle is giv­ing col­lege stu­dents the chance to ex­hibit their tal­ents.

A new col­umn, Col­lege Cuisine, will ap­pear reg­u­larly in the pages of the Chron­i­cle, pre­sent­ing a stu­dent cre­ated dish.

Graphic de­sign stu­dents will be de­sign­ing the col­umn.

Home eco­nomics teacher Lynn Don­ald­son said it was a great op­por­tu­nity for stu­dents to show the com­mu­nity what they had been work­ing on.

‘‘ I think it gives them more con­fi­dence just to present their dishes in a re­ally nice way.’’

Chron­i­cle man­ager Milly Keys said the pa­per had al­ways sup­ported col­lege gate­way stu­dents in­ter­ested in jour­nal­ism; and this now gave stu­dents in­ter­ested in ad­ver­tis­ing, graphic de­sign and home eco­nomics the chance to gain some prac­ti­cal ex­pe­ri­ence.

‘‘We value the re­la­tion­ship we have with Mata­mata Col­lege and this is a great way to show­case more of the stu­dents’ work,’’ she said.

New World Mata­mata is spon­sor­ing the project and owner Ewan Ather­ton said he jumped on board to sup­port Mata­mata’s mas­terchefs of the fu­ture.
