Lisa McNamara from the New England Institute of Technology visited the Design & Visual Communications students on Friday. She explained to the students what life in college would be like. She had a great discussion with them about what the pros and cons of college are.

QHS has a great Articulation with NEIT. Students who complete Ms. McGinnity’s DVC course get 3 automatic credits. If they get their Adobe Certified Associate certification in Photoshop they can get another 3 credits. NEIT will also examine student portfolios for additional credit on an individual basis. What a great deal!

QHS Culinary Arts seniors along with Future Chef students from various Boston high schools learned about where some of their food comes from, by getting the chance to participate in this year’s Cranberry Harvest at Spring Rain Farm in E. Taunton. Students learned about the process and history as well as helping out in the bogs. Spring Rain Farm also raises free-range hogs that are available through their CSA program. Students were able to mingle among the pigs as Farmer William McCaffrey explained to the students the process of raising, pricing, and the slaughtering of the hogs.
