food and technology
Our Food and Technology Course is a hands on introduction into the wonderful world of cooking and food appreciation. Students at all levels have the opportunity to undertake this course at Sherbrooke Community School. The above images show some of the amazing dishes the students have produced.
For Primary Students this course can give them a chance to experience lots of new tastes and learn basic cooking methods and skills.
They love the hands on aspect of this course and get especially excited about using produce from our kitchen garden or using eggs laid by our very own hens. Of course their very favourite part is eating the foods they have cooked!
And whilst this is only a taste of what is to come, it gives the students practical and theoretical knowledge which they can build on in their secondary years.
In years 7 and 8 the students get to work with more varied equipment and more involved recipes. They learn a variety of different cooking methods including frying, baking, roasting and boiling. They extend their food prep skills as well as their ability to use recipes more independently.
