Ending the year full of beans

A pop-up coffee bar at Wairarapa College last week was a tasty celebration for students who have completed barista training.

Five students from the school’s Whare Āwhina Supported Learning Centre [SLC] have been on work placement with Laura Hutchinson, owner of Shotz Coffee Hatch in Masterton.

Hutchinson has been training the teenagers in coffee and other hot drink making from her little shop opposite Countdown supermarket. The school coffee bar was a chance for them to show their skills – while also making themselves some rather delicious drinks.

Hutchinson’s coffee suppliers, Sublime Coffee Roasters, sponsored the training opportunity.

Barista training was just one of many job experiences sampled by SLC students and included gardening, laundry work, Reduced to Clear, helping the school nurse, GoZone, Mahi Tahi Tatou Charitable Trust, St John, Chanel Court and the Wairarapa College hostel.

Last Wednesday, the SLC hosted whānau at their end-of-year concert and prizegiving. Performances included kapa haka, pepeha, drama recitals and speeches by the students.
