Year 12 Food Science and Nutrition

Times are tough but education rolls on. My Year 12 Food Science and Nutrition students have been working hard on a MOCK piece of coursework over the last couple of weeks. Their brief was to design and make a 3 course meal for 2 people in 3 hours. Their target group was teenagers in a hotel setting. They researched the nutritional needs of teenagers and a wide range of hotel menus to help them with their final menu design.

With fantastic parental support, equipment borrowed from school and the use of “Live Teams”  my wonderful students produced the most amazing dishes in 3 hours! I am so proud of everyone and can’t wait to have them back in school cooking in front of me rather than on a computer screen.

Well done to all

Head of Food

TAKING CARE OF YOU – DAY ONE

For the next 5 days we are going to post a “Taking care of YOU” top tip for our young people and families. We know this is a hard time for everyone and taking care of your mind as well as your body is so important at this time. These tips might not be anything new but sometimes it is helpful to have ideas broken down and shared again. Pass them on and help others too!

Taking Care of YOU – Day one
Talk to someone about your worries. It’s ok to feel helpless, scared or anxious at this time. It’s also ok to feel fine. Everyone reacts differently. Try talking to someone you trust about how you feel. Sharing our worries helps. If you don’t feel you can talk to someone you know, click the link below for a range of fantastic helplines.
