​This year has been packed with fun filled activities to engage our students. The Kitchen Garden program is in full swing and many of our students have been involved in growing a variety of plants and vegetables. They have been very proud to then use them in their cooking. The study of Thailand allowed them to use freshly grown herbs and vegetables from their gardens. The students have been learning about culture and cuisines from a variety of countries including India, China and America. The students prepare their meals and then sit together at a shared table to dine.
 
Our students enjoyed a three day adventure at Currimundi Recreational Camp in May, where they were involved in rock climbing, high ropes, beach and team building activities. The camp is designed to allow students to build friendships, try different things and build confidence. Many students cannot wait until the 2019 camp.
 
We have introduced many programs this year, designed to assist our students. The “I CAN” Network is a social skills program, run by people with Autism, to empower and mentor students on the spectrum to have an “I CAN” attitude.
 
In Term 4, we welcome Year 6 students from our feeder schools to visit the DLH for a four week transition program. These transition days are designed to prepare students for the expectations of high school, lessen anxiety and build new friendships. The students will participate in a variety of lessons, including English, Mathematics, Industrial Technology and Home Economics.
 
The Year 8 and 10 Art Classes have been working on some amazing drawings in their Animal Drawing Unit, recreating a Picasso self-portrait. The students are exceptionally proud of their creations and so are we. In Digital World, students have created some amazing digital artworks and PowerPoints. Many students have also participated in traineeships and are doing exceptionally well in the workplace.
