Tutus in the spotlight
WHERE might you find elaborately crafted tutus and delicious wood-fired pizzas in the same room?
At Wollongbar TAFE's Tutu Review, an event "with a twist", which will involve students from three faculties showing off their creations and skills.
On Friday Certificate IV Costume students will show off their tutu creations to fellow students, teachers and the general public.
Student Sonia Osborn said she was excited about showing off their works.
"It should be a fantastic day," she said.
"It's really great for us to be able to celebrate what we've done, and this year we're also raising money for AIDS."
Meanwhile Certificate III Events students have organised a fashion parade in consultation with the fashion department.
Certificate II Hospitality students will be making pizzas in the campus's wood-fired oven.
Events teacher Jeremy Scheerlinck said the campus was buzzing in the lead-up to the event. "As we near the end of the year, students are keen to put theory into practice and show what they can do," he said.
"So much work has gone into creating these tutus that it would be a shame not to put them on display.
"Our events team has recognised this and designed an event to cater for those needs."
Students studying a Certificate III in events are required, as part of their course, to run in-house events from conception right through to evaluation.
The Tutu Review starts at midday on Friday and members of the public are welcome. For more information, contact 6620 4888.
