Year 8 Hospitality Morning Tea
On Wednesday two groups of Year 8 Hospitality students made and served a 'morning tea' for our school Site Team.
Mrs Wentling has been teaching this new course on the Year 8 Technology carousel where students learn about the hospitality industry, food preparation, batch production, quality control and front of house service.
The first group made delicate sandwiches with a range of fillings and baked biscuits, lemon meringue tarts and apple cake. The second group concentrated on presenting the food, dressing the table and serving our guests.
Mrs Wentling was extremely pleased with the whole groups efforts and is looking forward to repeating the exercise with the other groups whilst treating other staff teams throughout the year.
All the students seemed to enjoy the practical experience and said of the BTEC Hospitality course,
"So far we have made burritos, profiteroles, calzone and lemon curd tartlets. It's quite technical."
"They are difficult foods to make but it's fun - it's like training for us."
"It's different to Food Tech, we get to experience what it's really like in industry."
Our site team had a lovely time and would like to thank the students and Mrs Wentling for their efforts. Mrs Wentling would like to thank our Food Technology Technician Mrs Wilkinson, who put a lot of time and effort into preparing for the event.< Back to all news stories
