Trafalgar students wow school board officials

Students made a cake replica of the school

At a recent Kootenay Lake school board celebration of learning, Trafalgar Middle School students literally gave a piece of the school to trustees as a demonstration of their learning.

Three students who have shown interest in a career as a professional baker teamed up with a local bakery to make a replica cake of Trafalgar school itself. Teacher Staci Proctor enlisted the expertise help of Wabie Quayle of Starbird Bakehouse. Quayle commented that their “enthusiasm, talent and passion was a delight to see.”

Quayle donated the ingredients and her time to help these Grade 6 and 7 students bake and decorate a cake resembling the school.

Other students at the presentation were busy sharing their Trafalgar experience while cake was being served up. They handed out t-shirts hand-made at Trafalgar, and showied video interviews of Trafalgar students. They highlighted the presentation board they created with their teacher, Amy Strachan, that included the many voices and experiences of students.

Due to the success of the Trafalgar cake, these girls were commissioned to create a Central School cake to celebrate the upcoming school board office move.
