Green Point Christian College Year 10 students have been involved in an innovative Dairy Australia program, “Cows Create Careers, Camembert in the Classroom,” which involves the making of camembert cheese.

A number of schools across the Sydney region participated in the program and the Green Point team won first prize. “Our students did a fabulous job, following instructions diligently to produce a delicious product of gold medal quality,” teacher, Ms Virginia Lumby, said.

The program is designed to encourage secondary school teachers and students to learn about the Australian dairy industry while introducing students to dairy manufacturing careers and pathways, and complements internal teaching and learning. Over a term, students make their own camembert cheese in the classroom and complete assessments, including creating multimedia advertisements addressing why dairy is an important part of our diet. A cheque for $300 was awarded to the College for taking fi rst place.
