Year 8 and 9 students of Brisbane Water Secondary College Umina campus attended an Introduction to Barista course hosted at Ourimbah TAFE on March 15 and 29.
"Three students shared each espresso machine and learnt how to make a variety of coffee styles", said careers advisor Ms Yvette Beemster.
The campus intends to follow up on the TAFE excursion by running a barista work experience program at the school.
It is hoped that the experience coupled with attendance at the part time job sessions will encourage many of the students to secure part-time employment.
