CAN you ice a cake, repair a tap or wire a plug?
They are among the activities at Rastrick High School’s new state-of-the-art technology centre.
The school opened the doors to its £2m tech centre for the community to learn skills old and new.
Using a sewing machine and knitting were also on the curriculum in the first of two open days.
Thirty members of the public attended the first day and took part in the traditional activities which are often overlooked in modern life but can save households money.
And they’re doing it all again this Saturday, at the Field Top Road school from 11am until 2pm.
It’s open to the public and they hope a few keen knitters will get involved in contributing towards the Rastrick Community Scarf, which is the school’s symbol of its community involvement during their silver jubilee year.
Rastrick pupils learn much more than the household basics – they are learning construction, manufacturing and product design, computer software, hospitality and hair and beauty.
In addition to their studies, the centre teaches them practical skills and offers the chance for work placements to enhance their academic work.
