Day 2 of the Barista STAR holiday programme started with fresh coffee today!

Nine Iona year 12 & 13s took time out of their holidays to learn the art of making great coffee.

STAR courses are available to senior high school students throughout the year across a wide range of subject areas. These courses help students decide what they may wish to study at tertiary level or provide new skills that can be used to get a holiday job, or just for fun and self-development. Some STAR courses will also gain students NCEA Level 2 credits.
