In Food Technology and Materials Technology, Room 10 have been working towards preparations for 'Purple Cake Day'. This is a day where we were fundraising to raise money for children's education across the world. At Berkley we focused on a three-pronged approach: Making cakes to sell, a school-wide mufti day and a wearable arts show, where each costume had to reflect the makers, as well as including something purple.
It's not just about cakes – it's about kids helping kids all over the world. “We learn about kids in other countries, and raise money to help them get an education,” says Skylar – Purple Cake Day student ambassador.
On Thursday, Berkley raised around $1300. This was a fabulous result for all of the students' hard work.
