2018 Waikato Culinary Fare

It was a couple of long and tiring, but exciting couple of days at Wintec for the Waikato Culinary Fare - Culinary Competitions. There were schools participating from all over the Waikato, Bay of Plenty, Auckland, Coromandel and the East Coast with almost 600 entries in the various sections. The students entered into the ‘Static’ sections where they are required to produce their well-practiced products and present them for judging on the day.
A massive congrats to the following students who worked hard and achieved outstanding results up against some mighty tough competition. Eva Griffin-Jones - Bronze Medal (Cafe Cake). Ruby Cording - Merit (Cupcake). Irralee Hair - Silver Medal and overall class winner (Savoury Pie). Jess Cawte - Bronze Medal (Savoury Pie).


40 Hour Famine Success - $8030.00 Raised

Advanced Learners Social Studies students set themselves a goal of raising $5000 as the social action component of their curriculum study of global inequalities. They are delighted with a total that is $2000 more than was raised last year. The’ Famine Focus Day’ featured a sausage sizzle, bake sale, green bucket collection and a mufti-day.  The most impressive contributions made through raising sponsorship were Zoe Chapman ($498) Shania Marshall ($185) and Eva Karena ($198). Money raised will contribute to World Vision programmes for refugee children who have escaped violence and famine in South Sudan. We are, once again, very grateful for the sponsorship of our sausage sizzle from Brookfield New World.
