SIX students from Narooma High School’s industrial technology class presented their Year 12 HSC projects to be marked last week.
Teacher Peter Zideluns said the furniture made by students was of a very high standard this year and was marked by independent markers from the Board of Studies on Thursday.
This was one of the last HSC courses where students were required to do a practical major project and it would give them lifelong skills, he said.
The students sourced the timber themselves from local timber merchants in Cobargo and Bodalla.
The students each year also participate in the Eurobodalla Woodies show at Tilba and this year Alex Krantz won the novice category.
The HSC projects this year are a stringy bark and ironbark island bench made by Lachlan Carey, Tim Watson’s rose gum and brush box entertainment centre, a South Coast mahogany chest of drawers by Alex Krantz, a hidden drawer desk made of tallowwood and silver top by Jaymin Lobo, a display cabinet of ironbark, brush box and Banksia by Nathan Batten and pine and maple bedside table by Yuin Campbell.
The guys and their teacher will have to wait until the HSC results are released to see what the markers though of their projects.
