Pupils, Parents & Pals

On Wednesday 22nd March, the Home Economics Dept. will once again host one of their “Foodie” evenings. The menu for this Wednesday includes Chicken Korma followed by hot Swiss Trifle. Sounds delicious.

Pupils, Parents, Pals Evenings

Tonight, Wednesday 15th March, the Home Economics Dept. are hosting the first of a series of 4 nights in which Pupils, Parents and Pals will be discovering new cooking methods and how to make exciting healthy dishes to feed a family.

On the Menu tonight is Mock Moussaka followed by Carrot Cake  with Cream Cheese Frosting. The menus for the following weeks will include: Minestrone Soup and Chicken Fajitas, all accompanied by fantastic – but not so healthy – desserts

After Easter the family group will change over to visit the Technical Dept. Here they will have the opportunity to use a laser cutter to make articles for the home. These will include items such as personalised key rings and wall clocks.
