The VCAL students have had a hectic few weeks in our café, THE 7TH LAB. At the end of Term 3, it was Mercy Day that had the VCAL students busy planning and organising. The students were keen to try something new and create a unique café experience, so the Grease Diner was born. They sourced supplies for the day, came up with creative ideas for the menu, promoted the event, and worked non-stop in the café all Mercy Day. With typical 50’s style treats such as ice cream sundaes, spiders and milkshakes with whipped cream (the favourite being the “Pink Lady”), our diner was an absolute hit with students on the day.

Last Thursday, the VCAL students thought it would be a great idea to add a few “throwback” items to our menu as it was the last 7TH LAB for our Year 12s.

Our homemade hedgehogs and honey joys sold out very quickly, and the Year 12s enjoyed their free lolly bag, compliments of THE 7TH LAB.

Well done to the VCAL students for these fun initiatives!
