Bickley Year 10 student Ashley Crute is one student who has already achieved her dream, with her cookbook Yum, which includes recipes from her family and her own personal favourite sweet dishes.

As part of the International Baccalaureate program at the school, Ashley and her fellow Year 10 students have completed a one-year personal project that has left the students tired but proud.

Each project is on display at the school for three days after the initial opening launch.

Sophie Spanney focussed on junk yards to collect her old and recycled metals from which she created a lizard sculpture for the outdoors, much of it made from old car engines.

Teacher and co-ordinator of the IB program Rebecca Murray said the students had achieved some amazing results, from scriptwriting about topics in which they were interested to seeking commissions for their artwork, such as Sophie’s lizard.

‘This is an amazing piece which took a lot of hours to make and I would not be surprised if she gets quite a it of work out of this with orders for more of the same,’ Ms Murray said.

And budding carpenter Megan |Armstrong-Boase researched and produced an amazing motorcycle themed rocker made from four different types of locally sourced hardwood.
