Food, glorious food!

St Chrysostom’s School had a wonderful international food festival last Friday afternoon. 

Parents brought in food and shared it in the food hall, and what a variety there was – and what a quantity too. (We understand that Miss Michael the Headteacher had three plates full!)

Two comments from parents:

‘it was lovely to get together, many countries, much food ….. wonderful!’

‘what has being lovely is the contrast. I’m from Algeria, she is from Libya and our cous cous recipe are completely different. We have loved comparing and exchanging recipes and ideas that are new and different. …. There’s a world of difference!”

Mrs Slater, Parent Support Adviser commented:

“I have been overwhelmed by the generosity of our families. It has been an honour to share with them an afternoon of wonderful home cooked food and fabulous company. It has been inspirational seeing all the generations of families coming together. ”

And we give Miss Michael the last word:

“I am so proud of our families’ contribution to st Chrysostom’s international cuisine afternoon. over 50 family members including mums, dads, nanas and cousins brought their mouth watering culinary delights into school for all our families to share. Even better they brought the recipes!”

Well done, St Chrysostom’s School and parents – next sharing of food – December 2nd!
