Intermediate students from Greytown Primary School celebrated the end of their technology programme at Kuranui College by preparing, cooking and serving food at a pop-up cafe.

Head of Kuranui Technology, Doug Juggins, said Greytown School Cafe was about putting skills into culinary practice.

The students had learnt hygiene, food preparation and service techniques during the term and the cafe allowed Year 7 and 8 students to put the skills they had learnt in class into practise.

They prepared all the food under the guidance of staff from the college and chef David Rose.


The cafe was set up in the technology block foyer and the students decorated the foyer and tables in a festive theme, with each table laid with fresh cut flowers.

"Invited guests arrived and were seated and served and those students not serving customers became the 'customers' themselves," said Mr Juggins.

He said they all had a good time and everyone got to sample the food.

"Everyone did extremely well to prepare, cook and serve the food in only a few hours. At the end of the session, it was all hands to the pump for the clean-up and then back on the bus to their normal studies."

He said it was a really fun way to end a positive year.
