As part of our year 10 Hospitality and Catering course, pupils had to plan and make an afternoon tea for the elderly neighbours in the community.
Originally this would have happened in school and we would have decorated the main hall with lots of festive decorations. Pupils would have then been waiters as well as cooking and preparing the food. However, due to the current Covid 19 situation, we had to adapt it to a take-away service in order to keep the elderly safe. This meant we had to deliver the food to our local community church for the elderly to collect.
Because we were offering this take away service, we had to decorate food boxes and gift bags these boxes were then packed full of delicious food. These could then be taken away and enjoyed by the elderly community of the church.
The year 10 pupils involved, found it an interesting, enjoyable and reward experience
“I enjoyed making the quiches because it helped me revise what I’ve done in the past and contributing to the local community” Elliot N
“I enjoyed making the cakes and decorating them with buttercream however it was challenging making them look the same” Tedi Z
“The thing I most enjoyed was getting the boxes prepared for our delicious food” Jayden F
We are so proud of the hard work and attention to detail the pupils put into the event. Well done year 10!
