Need for Feed Cooking Program Offered Again in Term 4

This term Mrs Holman facilitated the Need for Feed cooking program run by Diabetes Queensland. A program that aims to educate students on healthier eating choices. The College supported this initiative financially and we had 16 students in Years 7 and 8 participate. Students created healthy afternoon teas, main meals and the occasional dessert. All had fun, learnt new skills and went home with a cookbook and something yummy to eat.

The College is in a position to again run this program next term. We need 15 students from Year 7 to 9. It will run from 3:20-5:20 pm each Thursday from Weeks 1 to 8. If your child is interested, please have them collect the permission slip from the secondary office and return it as soon as possible.
