On the 22nd June Alderwasley Hall School organised and hosted a Australian Theme Day.
This was part of the global diversity day which included Australian themed activities throughout the day. Angela, Andrew (pictured), Sue and Joan created a Australian theme menu: Ozzie Burger with Beetroot Snags (Sausages) Salt and Pepper Squid Variety of Salads including Avocado and Seafood Salad and Asparagus Salad. The young people at really enjoyed the whole event and enjoyed trying new foods and flavours.
The Group Catering Manager works with all the schools to deliver relevant theme This includes curriculum linked events, specific school focuses and national diary events such as “World Book Day”.
Here are a few theme events we have worked on in the last few months:
Japanese Day – A school cultural day, we produced a Japanese themed menu and decorated the dining room.
French Themed Tea
National Pie Week – The young people helped to create the menu and even helped make some of the pies and fillings.
When creating the menus we try to source authentic recipes and ingredients, we then encourage the young people to try new flavours and textures.
