Year 10 Soft Materials students have worked in groups or individually to design, make and cost a product. Their hard work culminated in their presenting their products in an Expo during a lunchtime last week.
Staff and students were invited to view and vote for their favourite and the winners are..... Michelle Huang and Angel Chan!! - for their fabulous bread and donut cushions .
Second place went to Setta Kaisala and Etu Thompson Schwenke for their Lynfield School reversible bucket hat and third prize went to Akanesi Vea for her cute smiley face emoji t-skirt.

Every year the year 9 Soft Materials classes design and make quilts for a charity. In terms 3 and 4 students worked in groups to design a quilt for ‘Foster Hope’ a New Zealand organisation that helps children and young people going in to foster homes by providing them with individual packs .
Students felt passionate about this cause and worked really hard to create colourful quilts to help easy a difficult situation for many children.
The photos are a selection of some of the quilts made.
