The website is being created by the senior IT students from Hillston High School, assisted by their teacher.
Julie asked students to be involved after a suggestion by the school principal ,who is also on the WNWN committee. The aim was for students/young people to be involved in the WNWN project and demonstrates the involvement in the project by all sections of community.
The students have been very enthusiastic about the website and have aimed to provide a professional looking product.It has given them an opportunity to participate in a real life project,developing and using their skills in a meaningful way.
Their involvement has led to an interest by the students in WNWN and the final destination of the food which leaves Hillston and ends up in Sydney. Julie and Sue organised an excursion for the students earlier this month to visit Foodbank and several Salvation Army and Uniting Church welfare organisations so they could learn more about the complete process of WNWN and it's social justice aims.
It was a great success but more on that next time....
