  • Vegan Meatballs

    Published 24/11/23

    Over the weeks students in Year 8 have been looking and experimenting with alternative foods for meat.  Vegan meatballs were on the menu and to the surprise of the students they were very taken to the non-meat foods.  Making a very tasteful sauce to go with it from fresh ingredients really gave them an insight to home cooking and using even the dreaded mushroom does add flavour to the sauce. Getting the basics right in the classroom really allowed the students to see that the simplest of recipe can be made at home. Students had a great time cooking and enjoyed tasting their creations too.

  • Trip to Kew Garden

    Published 20/10/23

    On Thursday 12th and Monday 16th of October, Year 7 and Year 8 students visited Kew Gardens. Upon arrival, students made their way to Palm House which is a greenhouse, were temperatures go up to 35 degrees with intense humidity! Even on the day, when it was 13 degrees outside, it was almost unbearably hot inside of the Greenhouse. Students were able to identify the different types of plants, from coffee to cocoa to vanilla plants and other tropical palms, it felt like walking in a rainforest. From there, students made their way to the Temperate House which had exhibitions of flowers, citrus plants and a display promoting the Queer Ecology found in plants. The flowers and indoor artificial waterfall garden was absolutely beautiful.
