The innovation of students and community members was on show Thursday night when Wagga High students showcased their projects.
Several year 10 students took part in the “Small Waves” program which aimed to connect them with the community.
Projects completed during the year included a recipe book made using local’s recipes, a foodbank was set up at the school to supply families with frozen homemade meals and welcome packs were created for refugee students.
Program coordinator Trish Henderson said mentors Jan Centrella, Kim Wilson, Steven Cook and Kyle Pearson worked hard to support the students.
Students had time during school to work on their projects but many found themselves putting in extra hours.
The group celebrated their efforts on Thursday afternoon from 5.30pm.
