This week our Year 9 Food Students have been learning about secondary processing of milk, to make an end product, in this case Scones. Firstly they whisked double cream to separate the butterfat from the milk, before straining it to remove all of the liquid. During the next lesson they utilised the Butter and Buttermilk to make fruit Scones.
What a fantastic game winning 19 -13 to an incredibly talented KHS team. Some lovely comments from their teacher on how well we played and how competitive it was from both sides. Throughout the whole game we kept possession by playing not just with our hearts but with our heads. Defensively we were very strong. Sofia, Lily, Keri and Darcie marked very close winning their 1v1’s and by reading the game were able to intercept some very important KHS passes. Izzy and Tyra were awesome and won the midfield battle making it very difficult for the opposition to gain control of the game. The energy and determination from our attacking players Chloe, Sandra and Lauren resulted in 19 fantastic goals. They were a force to be reckoned with. Once again, I was truly proud of this group of students who performed brilliantly on and off the court. Well done to you on a fantastic season. Champions!
Our Yr 9 Basketball team played an experienced Yr 10 team from Aylesford to compete for our Area in the Schools Games in a 3 v 3 tournament.
Our squad of Adam C., Dom S., Raef O-M, Theo B. and Jack A. adapted very quickly to this new format and made the Aylesford team work hard for possession and any points. Dom S. put our first points on the board and when Adam C. scored the only 3 pointer of the match, we were temporarily in the lead. In time, however, the size and experience of the Aylesford team took it’s toll and they pulled away to win.
Unfortunately, during our 2nd game Adam C. suffered a nasty injury to his knee and we had to stop the contest. However, the team can be very proud of their performances, and we hope to have some more fixture in the future.
We all wish Adam a speedy recovery and he was undoubted our Man of the Match.
On Monday 21st March during Period 5, Onatti Productions will be performing the Spanish play ‘En el Campamento’ for students in Years 9-11 who are studying Spanish. The play is about two friends who go on a camping trip. After a train and taxi ride, they arrive at the campsite and realise it is not what they were expecting and are totally unprepared. No mobile reception and no food turns friendship into friction!
