Year 10 spent the last three days of term undertaking a Living Skills program. The hope of this program is to ensure that students enter their final years at KWS ready for the world ahead of them.
Day One consisted of six rotations involving etiquette training, table setting and manners, instructions on appropriate dress, ironing, cooking and speech making.
Day Two focussed on more practical skills, with all 130 students out at the new school farm. The students undertook six rotations on car maintenance, changing a tyre, livestock movement, fencing, attending the scene of an accident and tying down a load.
Day 3 involved a workshop from the Commonwealth Bank on budgeting, tax, credit and pay before the students headed out to a variety of destinations in Orange to undertake community service. Once back at school, they had the option of a final workshop on either exercise, mindfulness, investment, budgeting, buying your first car or planning a gap year.
