Year 9 Food Technology Enterprise Task - Mrs Rohde

The Year 9 food technology class completed their final practical task today, The Enterprise Task involved students using the skills they have learnt throughout the semester to create their own business enterprise selling a "food truck food".

Students had to develop a plan for the food that they wanted to sell, advertise, write the workflow plan for how they would organise themselves on the day, cost their food and packaging, prepare, and then serve their food on the day, working to time pressures and a hungry staff audience.

Student groups made popcorn chicken and chips, baked potatoes, fried rice and kebabs and pumpkin soup, garlic bread and milo balls, a complete all in one dish!

Students worked exceptionally hard all day and certainly gained an experience of what is involved in the hospitality industry.

They produced some delicious options. Our grateful thanks must go to our staff who support these students by buying what they produce and contribute to their learning.
