College Students Prepare Meal For Village Residents

A group of senior Flaxmere College students have planned, prepared and cooked a three-course meal for Swansea Village Flats as part of the school’s “enrichment” programme.

The meal menu included roasted pumpkin soup and rewana bread, honey soy chicken drumstick, sliced ham on bone, mashed potato, peas, carrots, stuffing ball, gravy and apple crumble and cream.

Principal Louise Anaru-Tangira said approximately 25 students from Year 11 to 13 participated in the programme.

Students opt to participate in an alternative course of learning for two days and these students opted for a hospitality service to the community course, Anaru-Tangira says.
