This week in Home Economics we have been making tacos, guacamole and salsa all from scratch.
The students have been demonstrating their knife skills, group work and planning. They were given free reign to season and spice, and completed their cooking without assistance and under time pressure, just like on masterchef!
Mr Furie The Home Economics teacher:
I'm super proud of their work and their skills. Home Economics teaches the students how to live in the world after school. They are currently all working on their own menu for their final test. We will also be organising a cooking club and house competition for after autumn break.
