Year 12 Starpack Packaging Awards Success

The Starpack Awards is a national competition open to students to support the teaching of the materials, minerals and mining related topics and to raise awareness of and promote careers in the fields of materials, minerals and mining engineering.

Packaging is an industry that is around us every day but one that we take little notice of. Look around you - in the supermarket, in your home, in your school - every item has arrived in a package and outer packaging used for transportation.
Students in Year 12 Product Design entered this competition completing design ideas and a prototype model for the brief “Alternative Advent”.
We are proud of the work completed by all students in the class, but would like to specifically congratulate one student who won two awards for Best Portfolio and the Silver Award for his ‘Tamil Kitchen Advent Calendar’ and another who received the honour of “highly commended” for his ‘Screwfix Advent Calendar’
Full information about the design briefs and winners can be found on the Starpack website:
