Royal Navy visit the Home Economics department

Wednesday 27 th of November saw two members of the Royal Navy visit the Home Economics Department to cook with almost 40 Senior Students from the National 5 Hospitality Practical cookery course. Students experienced creating a delicious Chicken Korma, while learning about the importance of nutrition to the officers being fed on a regular basis in many parts of the World.
They also heard about the many and varied career opportunities on offer within the Royal Navy and Royal Marines. Another aspect they shared was the use of ‘ ration packs’, how officers survived in very challenging environments using these provisions.
The Officers took time to answer questions on their own experiences and shared their skills during the practical cooking, including little tips on cooking in very confined spaces
The students worked exceptionally well throughout and really impressed the Officers. Katie Higgins in S6 offered a vote of thanks on behalf of the students and staff.
Well done to all involved!
