Local business man visits Food Tech class

Year 10 students studying GCSE Food and Nutrition were recently visited by a local fishmonger and butcher, Simon Rhodes. Simon owns a shop on Wood Street in Old Town, Swindon, and offered to come into our lessons to show students how to prepare and cook fish.

Students sampled raw, partially cooked and cooked fish of different varieties. Most, who had never tried raw fish said, ‘ At first we were sceptical, however after tasting and sampling the fish we loved it’!

Food teacher Mr Parkes said, ‘It’s a great opportunity to allow local businessmen and women into our school to show their expertise and allow students to experience things they have never done before.  There is a clear link with the curriculum they are following too’.
