Christmas festivities-Food and Nutrition

14th December 18

The last few days of term are always very busy in Food and Nutrition. The festive cooking begins with a Christmas Masterchef competition and a Christmas Cake Day with wreath making for parents and pupils. In First Form, Jack Madge-Smith won the Masterchef title with his homemade Yule log, Megan Culley also beat off the competition in 4th Form with a homemade chocolate roulade, decorated and turned into a chocolate log. Meanwhile 26 parents and pupils came into school last Saturday to make their Christmas Cakes and mincemeat. After a delicious homemade lunch everyone made a beautiful door wreath or table centre piece, under the tuition of two past pupils Lianne Goates and Tarn Chambelain James.

Lianne and Tarn returned to school on Monday to make cakes for the homeless charity and one extra cake was made and sold to the Deputy Head with the donation going to pay for a Homeless person’s Christmas Dinner via the charity Crisis.

On the last day of term 1st Form pupils made sausage rolls and took them around the school for everyone to enjoy. For homework everyone was set the challenge to try a new food over Christmas!
