Cake Decorating Workshop

Hi there!

We are going to plan a cake decorating workshop.  It will be a Thursday or Friday towards the end of June or beginning of July.
Participants will need to bring a cake and possibly a packet of appropriate icing.  There will be a small fee to cover equipment and consumables supplied by the lady taking the workshop.
We can give further details later, but for now, we would like expressions of interest and preferred days.
Further ideas are to donate the cakes to a fundraiser or have a shared meal on the Friday with cake for dessert.  Any suggestions?

Happy Homeschooling!

Great news from Canterbury University
Home-school Student Award
 I'd like to bring to your attention some recent work we have been doing at the University of Canterbury clarifying progression to university for home-school students. There are several pathways for home-school students to gain admission to UC for degree level study, which are outlined on a new web page we have created. Also for the first time UC Arts is offering a College Award especially for home-school students, which is tied to one of those pathways.
 UC Arts is offering home-schooled students the opportunity to receive a College Award of $3000 towards fees in their first year of full time study in a BA, MusB, or BFA.
 Please contact us if you would like to discuss ways that we can promote this offer to home-school students through your networks, or if you have questions about the College Award or the STAR programme.
For any enquiries about Special Admission or the STAR Programme please contact:
