The Lodge

Lounge @ The Lodge


All students are helping to set up a community café which will serve the school and local community. Roles include preparing food, taking orders, mobile services, taking payments.  This enterprise is a fantastic opportunity for our students to serve the local community whilst developing a wide range of skills including functional Mathematics and English to help prepare them for life beyond Hillcrest.  We aim to develop teamwork, negotiation, future planning, tolerance, experience and preparation for employment.

Homegrown @ The Lodge


We are currently in the process of setting up an allotment area at the Lodge where students will learn skills in growing their own fruit and vegetables.  We are hoping to involve our local community in this project, pulling together skills and experience that we can share and grow together.  The ultimate aim is for us to use our homegrown produce in our community café.
