Thank you to everyone who donated money towards the bore-hole for the school in Ghana.  Please see the letter and pictures below from the Headmistress of the school:

 

“On behalf of the St Luke R/C Basic School and on my own behalf, I would like to express my immense appreciation and profound gratitude for providing the school with cleanest and safest water through the construction of the bore-hole we are now enjoying.  It is one of the greatest assets we can be proud of, all through your generous giving and sharing your heart desire.  May the Lord bless you and replenish your giving a hundredfold”.

Rev Marian Antwi, Headmistress

Our Year 9 GCSE Food Preparation & Nutrition students were given a ‘Ready Steady Cook Team Challenge’

They were given a tray of mystery ingredients to make a new food product that must be interesting, tasty and attractive as well as provide a nutritious dish for a vegetarian or someone who is considering cutting down on their meat intake.

Each team had to give a 30 second ‘pitch’ stating the sensory qualities of the new product, what worked well and what could be improved, as well as write an evaluation of their new ‘Alternative Proteins’ based product explaining how this product has contributed towards a healthy balanced diet for a vegetarian.

The students were fantastic at displaying teamwork, group discussions, creativity and applying their knowledge of alternative proteins.

The overall winners were the ‘Yellow Peppers’ team so well done to Zion, Juleo and Kenniseyo!
