A recipe for success: Good Shepherd students cooking adventure at La Salle College

28 July 2021

During Term Two, La Salle College welcomed 16 education support students from Good Shepherd Catholic School into their Home Economics Department for a day of cooking adventures. 

The Good Shepherd students, from Years 3 through to 6, are all active members of their school Cooking Club, though they usually only have access to a small kitchen.  

The excursion provided a memorable learning experience for all involved, with Year 11 students assisting the younger students in a range of hands-on kitchen and cooking activities to investigate, explore and tap into their inquisitive minds.

The students were brimming with enthusiasm for cooking triple chocolate muffins, and approached the task with great excitement. 

After their cooking endeavours, students had a chance to explore La Salle College’s Education Support Centre and walk around the school grounds – gaining a small insight into high school life. 

Good Shepherd Education Support Coordinator, Ms Lisa Manifold, said the visit was an amazing experience that was talked about all the way back to school, at school, and even with family when the students went home that evening. 

“The expert tuition of Ms Ruth Payne, assisted by year 11 students, created an experience we could never replicate with our school resources – collaboration of resources is the key to extending learning and we will work on making this a regular part of our program”, Ms Manifold said.
