From VET Hospitality Teacher, Stephanie Boyce
On Thursday 22nd August, the Year 12 Marine Studies and Hospitality cohorts participated in an all-day Market Masterclass. Beginning at Pyrmont Fish Markets, the students were immersed in a cross-curricular experience that tied together two years of studying VET Hospitality and Marine Studies with their supervising teachers Gemma Brown, Kyte Gawman and Davina O’Hara, assisted by Garth Aird and Anne O’Loughin.
Students learnt about the quality control aspects of purchasing different types of fresh seafood, and participated in a ‘Masterclass’ at Waverley College, assisted by Darren Elmes, a parent of one of our students who works in the industry, preparing a variety of seafood-based dishes including BBQ octopus, marinara, smoked salmon, and battered fish.
All in all a wonderful immersive day was had, with thumbs up all round for the food!
