The young people at Aurora St Christopher’s are looking forward to the completion of their new dining area. It is set to be an amazing space for all the young people and staff to share food and socialise. The dining area will also serve as a food technology learning space where students will learn about cooking. Once complete the students will also have the opportunity to work at the café and run it as a social enterprise.
As part of the school's approach to Spiritual Moral Social Cultural development, Aurora St Christopher’s places a big emphasis on giving every young person a voice. Students were taught about democracy, and were involved in their own democratic vote, by voting for their favourite name for the new dining area.
It was a tight vote which could have gone either way, but the eventual winning name was The Zest Café! We're looking forward to grabbing a coffee and cake when it's complete.
