NEWS EASTERN COURIER, FEBRUARY 28, 2014 Grant cooks up opportunities A new grant will allow food and technology teachers at secondary schools to benefit from the latest in hospitality skills. The Hospitality Training Trust has allocated $15,000 to the Manukau Institute of Technology to develop resources and deliver training to food tech and hospitality teachers around the country. MIT dean of culinary arts Cherie Freeman says the materials they will develop include recipes, workbooks and requisition orders. Skills included in the resources will be different to what the teachers would have learned in their teacher training, she says. ‘‘We’re coming more from a hospitality commercial angle and teaching them culinary skills and terms.’’ Ms Freeman says an aim is to encourage students to view hospitality as a viable career path. ‘‘We don’t want [students] to be limited with what they can do at school. They will see the learning is more aligned to more realistic workplaces. The more experiences we can give them in school the more certainty they will have in choosing the right career path.’’ James Cook High School head of hospitality Sharon Mitford-Burgess says studying hospitality has great benefits for students. ‘‘Hospitality training gives [students] real discipline – they have to be punctual, well-presented and be able to communicate with their colleagues.’’ 11 Bucklands still on top of the list By ROSE CAWLEY An East Auckland school has notched up yet another great ERO review. Bucklands Beach Intermediate has a history of positive reports and continued the streak when the Education Review Office team was on site last November. The report which was released last month says students achieve well across the board and a focus is put on individual learner profiles. ‘‘Teachers and leaders collect information about students learning from assessment tasks that cover the different curriculum areas. ‘‘They also collect information about students attitudes to learning.’’ The school plays an Learning update: Food technology teachers Di Corban, left, from Papakura High School and Kashurie Simon from Otahuhu College prepare dishes taught as part of a culinary ‘‘Masterclass’’ at the Manukau Institute of Technology. active role in the wider educational community. ‘‘School leaders build networks with other schools and continue to build relationships with contributing schools to support transitions for students.’’ Being an International Baccalaureate School is a unique strength of Bucklands Beach Intermediate. Irrepressible: Leanne Graham from GeoOp, the guest speak at Bubbles for Bookkeeping Babes. Teamwork: Astill Hawke wants to recognise businesswomen’s hard work. Put sparkle in your life with new event Juggling families, good health and work takes a superwoman who, every now and then, should be rewarded for her toil. Bubbles for Bookkeeping Babes is about taking time out from the demands of daily life, having some fun and being inspired by other vibrant businesswomen. East Tamaki chartered accounting firm Astill Hawke and Associates launched the fun event in 2013 and the women had so much fun they decided to host the party again. ‘‘We’re an all-women team and we know that life is hectic for all of us, so we’d like to treat women to an hour or two of fun,’’ Mrs Hawke says. ‘‘This year Leanne Gra- ham, who was pivotal in the huge growth of Xero and is now the chief executive of GeoOp, is our guest speaker.’’ Not only is Ms Graham high-energy and fun, she is also a down-to-earth woman who was a teenage mum. She is an irrepressible entrepreneur building her own success story. Bubbles for Bookkeeping Babes is free and the Astill Hawke team hopes women will bring along a few dollars to generously support raffles for Kidz First Children’s Hospital. ‘‘We asked our local chil- dren’s hospital what they need and the emergency care department is desperately short of quality toys so we’re on a mission to help them out,’’ she says. There will be goodie bags, cupcakes, bubbles and time to network with other likeminded women. ‘‘We’re also asking bosses and blokes to treat their hard-working and accommo- dating women to a break from the books,’’ Mrs Hawke says. ❚ Bubbles for Bookkeeping Babes is on March 4, 1pm till 2.30pm, at BNZ Partners Centre, Level 1, 86 Highbrook Drive. ❚ Email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 985 9791 to register or for more information on the event.
