Wanneroo Times - - Fit For Business -

STU­DENTS in Edgewater made bis­cuits high­light­ing Abo­rig­i­nal in­gre­di­ents as part of Sorry Day ac­tiv­i­ties.

The Year 12 hos­pi­tal­ity pupils from Mater Dei Col­lege in­ves­ti­gated tra­di­tional Abo­rig­i­nal in­gre­di­ents and fused th­ese with clas­sic Aus­tralian recipes to cre­ate lemon myr­tle short­bread, wat­tle­seed An­zac and quan­dong jam drop bis­cuits.

Abo­rig­i­nal and Tor­res Strait Is­lan­der stu­dents rep­re­sented the col­lege class at a Sorry Day event in East Perth on May 26, where they raised $500 from sell­ing boxes of the bis­cuits.

The money will be do­nated to Rec­on­cil­i­a­tion WA and the De­part­ment of Abo­rig­i­nal Af­fairs’ Part­ner­ship, Ac­cep­tance, Learn­ing and Shar­ing pro­gram.
