Students in candle making have been learning how to create a candle from scratch, using wax, dye and different fragrances. Before students make their candles, they watch videos to see how to make the candles and follow the steps as a group.
In the first half of the term, students could take their completed candle home. As the term progressed, students started making candles to raise funds for different charities, for example UNICEF and Muslim Women Support Centre of WA (MWSC). This has been a wonderful experience for students as they learn the valuable lesson of sharing with others.
The students in candle making thoroughly enjoy the process of making candles, and are learning wonderful life skills that they can use later in life. We look forward to the next few weeks of candle making and sharing candles with local charity organisations.
