Course Costs and Equipment/ Stationery requirements

We would like to provide extra ingredients to enhance learning and we encourage a voluntary payment of $80 to cover these. Students will get to consume or take away the items they produce.

Students will also need to maintain credit on their print account during the year to support this course and it is strongly advised that students have their own container weekly for practical lessons.


Recommended Prior Learning
