VCAL Project

On 14th November we visited East West Child Care in Fitzroy to donate a large number of handmade teddy bears. One of our Year 12 VCAL students, Courtney Hildebrand, completed a work experience placement at the centre earlier this year, and has been working on the project as part of her Intermediate Certificate. She designed the pattern with assistance from Penny Stray, the school’s Hands On Learning Teacher, and has been meticulously crafting the bears alongside other Hands On Learning students. Staff and children at the centre were very excited to receive the bears, with the children eagerly choosing their favourites.
