After a year of honing their skills on a Monday morning in the kitchen, students in M4 have today waited on their parents and carers, preparing a two course lunch from scratch.
Parents and carers left satisfied, having enjoyed a variety of meals, including Southern Fried chicken, BBQ pulled pork pizza, chocolate fudge cake and Oreo cheesecake.
Thank goodness we have a dishwasher!!

In Dog Care today, Gryff began his agility training in the school quad.
We started with the tunnel using the command ‘tunnel’ – which Gryff took to quite quickly.
Then we introduced him to the jump using the command ‘over’. The students learned how rushing to push the bar up too quickly resulted in him taking the easier ‘limbo’ route, but they worked hard to correct him.
Finally, we started the learning progression for the tricky ‘weave’ obstacle but we didn’t push Gryff too much as he had worked hard this morning and we didn’t want to overload him. It’s really important to make learning and training fun forGryff.
Well done everyone, especially Gryff.
