Food Technology at Kelston Intermediate

Kia ora. My name is Reitu Warren and i am the new Food technology Teacher. I have been at Kelston Intermediate for one month now and have found the kaiako so welcoming and the tamariki both welcoming and all so keen to learn. Although i am new to Kelston Intermediate i am not new to the area, having taught at Kelston Girls’ for 18 years. Here is a little ‘taste’ of what we’ve been learning so far.

“This term we have made Apple Pie, Mac ‘n’ Cheese, Fritters and Pikelets. I have learnt to measure accurately and how to make new things i haven’t cooked before.” (Nikita Rm1)

“Food Tech is where we learn how to design new recipes and also to cook exotic things like apple pies.” (Maria Rm 6)

“I love how we have the opportunity to create different recipes with so many awesome flavours.” (Mali Rm 6)

“I have learnt about the value of certain veges and how they are affected by the weather” (Xarya Rm1)

“I have learnt how to weave (on my apple pie) which has made a big impact because i didn’t know how to weave. Cooking, to be honest, nothing beats it because you get to eat afterwards. Another reason is because everything you learn in Food Tech you can utilise and share with others”. (Alicia Rm1)
