A New Initiative at CHSS

The gerontology class at CHSS has begun a Lunch and Learn program with local seniors.  The group met for the first time Wednesday, March 28 in the school cafeteria.  After enjoying a delicious lunch,  prepared by the school’s hospitality students, the gerontology class spent time assisting the seniors with technology.  The students fielded questions about text messaging, facebook, twitter, iPads, cell phones, and provided hands-on tutorials.
This is the first of six Lunch and Learn sessions that will take place every other Wednesday over the next few months.  In addition to learning some new technology skills, the group also hopes to tackle cribbage, crokinole and euchre.  For more information please contact the school at 519-482-3471.

Fashion Stamping and Stencilling Workshop

CHSS Fashion students recently had the opportunity to participate in a 2 day stamping and stencilling workshop using natural dyes, with local fashion artist Jennifer Triemstra-Johnston.  During her career Jennifer has worked as a costume designer at the Blyth Festival, she is a small business owner, fashion workshop leader, and currently teaches part time at York University.  Thanks to a small project grant from the Foundation for Education Perth Huron, students learned about the history of fabric dyeing, natural dyes, sustainability and mordants.  They were able to stencil or stamp their own personal designs onto fabric and choose from a variety of natural dyes to create unique projects.
