A great day was had by all on Wednesday with the two Food Technology classes holding a luncheon for some senior members of the community. This was in keeping with their unit of work called ‘Food for Everyone’. This unit consisted of the students learning about the different dietary needs of the public and learning how to modify recipes accordingly. A Nutrition Australia representative spoke to them about the needs of the elderly population, and for their assessment, the students cooked food in keeping with these guidelines. This opportunity gave meaning to the classes and they loved having a real experience rather than just being theoretical.
Our guests enjoyed being around the young ones and were really surprised at the standard of the food! This could not have been achieved without the support of the staff in the canteen who helped with ordering and setting out the food which was greatly appreciated. Well done to the Food Technology classes you were amazing!
