Cooking. Painting. Stitching. These are just a few of the dozens of alternative courses that were taught this past week at Mount Carmel School as part of Mini-Course Week.

In its 23rd year at the school, Mini-Course Week gives junior high and high school teachers and students a chance to take a break from traditional academic instruction and dabble in hobbies and interests that engage students in hands-on learning.

This year’s mini-courses is the sixth and last year for senior and Student Council officer Rosa Castro, who has looked forward to the week every year. “I really enjoyed this year’s mini-course!  I learned new Japanese dishes and painting on the canvas’ was cool,” she said. “It’s a bittersweet moment because I always look forward to this week during the school year and I’m a bit sad that it’s our last mini-course.”

School president Galvin Deleon Guerrero is very happy that the school has continued Mini-Course Week for more than two decades. “Mini-Course Week is a great way to expand our understanding of schooling to include things that people are passionate about,” said Deleon Guerrero. “And it’s great to see everyone having fun while learning.

Mini-Course Week featured a wide array unique courses, including rosary making, computer coding, lollipop making, knitting, basic farming, and filmmaking. (PR)
