Year 11 Graduate Program (GP) students are aiming to make a difference by using their passion for design and technology to raise funds for Camps Cambodia.
Graduate Program students Mccarlie-Jayne Dohrmann, Jarryd Morriss and Thomas Krant with the first shirt hot off the press.
The group started by learning about the concept of a social enterprise and they are important, with this in mind they found a worthy charity and after a bit of brainstorming, the group decided that they could create some designs and using a heat transfer method they could be put onto shirts to sell to their peers.
Year 11 student Jarryd Morriss said, “At the moment we are still experimenting with the process of adding our designs to the shirts but we hope to get the website up soon so that everyone can show their support for our nominated charity”.
“The part that I have liked the most was building the website and learning how to customise it for our brand” said Jarryd, “The skills that we are developing here in this Graduate Program Impact Project will help us in the future”.
The process has not been without it’s challenges though, the group are still dialling in the temperature setting for their press and finalising their designs before they launch.
