  • Oh what fun to be had as usual at the Macksville Student Awards! Huge thanks must go to the tireless staff who put on the event, all of those who attended, the teachers who make learning so engaging and of course the stars- the students. It was heartwarming to see students being recognised for their achievements and the new 'funnies' category was a real hit! #nctafe

  • Thank you Love Food Hate Waste for coming to Casino TAFE We learnt to: Store food to keep it fresher for longer, create tasty ways to use leftovers, work out a weekly meal plan and sticking to a shopping list for the household, work out a divide-and-share system with a friend or neighbour if you’re buying perishable items in bulk and using quality locally produced products where possible. We also enjoyed a 4 course taster from Matt the chef. If you couldn't make it last night there is another workshop running tonight in the Lennox Head Community Centre. #lovefoodhatewaste ##northernriversproduce #christmascooking #Casino #lennoxheadcommunitycentre #newaste
