Maggi Pop Up Kitchen Showdown!

Today Room 8 took part in the Maggi Pop Up Kitchen Showdown!  This was a challenge organised by School Kit where the students were given a box of organic vegetables and some Maggi recipe bases and had to come up with their own meal that could be prepared in under 30 minutes, feed four and cost $20 or less!  Phew!!  

We did some activities in class and this morning spent some last few minutes preparing our recipes and instructions, and checking our budget.




Then it was down to the Foods Room (thanks so much for allowing us to use it Mrs. Brown!) to get cooking!!  It felt a little like being on Master Chef!!







Once all the cooking was done, then we had to plate it up!




Then it was the best part - the eating!

Well done, Room 8!  I must say I was a bit dubious about how this would go but you did fabulous!  Your meals looked amazing and you all worked so well together!  I think I would let you cook a meal for me anytime!

Huge thanks to Beni's mum, Ari's dad and Logan's grandmother for coming in and helping supervise and assisting where needed!

Tasman Rugby Skills

On  Thursday we had our second session with the "cool ginger rugby ninja" from Tasman Rugby Union (we aren't sure of his name but thought this sounded awesome... )  It was a blast!
