Cookery classes in the school is for with pupils from Class M2 to the School Leavers. They enjoy one session of cookery each week. Our cookery room is equipped so that it resembles a homely kitchen. We make a wide range of dishes using and re-using similar ingredients which are easily found in most fridges and kitchen cupboards. This is so that the pupils will be able to continue their cookery skills at home. One of the many crowning moments in the year is the in-school Cookery competition- this year it was a Sandwich Making Competition with very imaginative recipes to suit the various tastes of the finalists!
We also bake to produce cakes for very special occasions in our school year such as the 18th birthday parties for our school leavers and the First Holy Communion and Confirmation cakes. Wonderful Christmas cakes are made for our Annual Cake Sale in November/December as well as hundreds of delicious fairy cakes. The School leavers make and sell their scones in the school every week, much to the delight of the staff and they take orders for lunchtime sandwiches from all the staff. They sell the sandwiches as their mini enterprise every Friday. For many, cookery class is the highlight of their week, when they will proudly bring home their own offering to their family!
