Year 10 Food & Nutrition
Teacher in Charge: L. Ferguson
This course offers four units of work that will provide students with the knowledge and skills so they can make informed judgements about the food they eat as growing adolescents. It also allows students to design and make food items from scratch in safe and hygienic conditions. Students will also investigate how other cultures have influenced the foods eaten in New Zealand today.
This course will offer learning experiences in the following:
- Food safety and kitchen hygiene
- International foods
- Eating as a “grazing” adolescent
- Design, make and market your own food product
- Weekly food practical sessions are included to develop food preparation skills and confidence
Most ingredients are supplied by the department; however, students will be asked to bring ingredients as well.
Access to a keyboard device is highly recommended for success in this course.
For NCEA Levels 1, 2 & 3 courses will be made up of a selection of the stated standards. This will happen at the beginning of the year with the assigned teacher.
