Congratulations to Maggie Carroll 13NJF and Liza Khorozova 13JRD who recently participated in the National Secondary Schools Culinary Challenge held at Ara Institute of Canterbury.
Both girls were awarded a gold medal with Maggie winning overall at 95% and Liza was awarded with 94.6%.
The criteria for their dish was to include tomato which had to be the star of the dish. They produced a Tomato tart with fresh tomato and basil salad, manuka smoked foam and goats cheese.
Both girls will now form a team and travel to Auckland for Nationals in September. They will have to produce four entrees and mains within 90 minutes.
Burnside High School was successful at winning the National Title in 2015 enabling the team to travel to Tahiti to represent New Zealand.
On the 19th June, BHS Pasifika
students participated in the SPACPAC BizNinja Challenge - and
8 of our Pasifika students were involved ranging from Year 9 to
Year 13. We had Irene Tugaga, Wesley Fifita, Rosebud Fifita and
Ofa Puleiku on one team and Rosa Samuelu, Mareta Tuuga Meatuai,
Moeivai Tuuga and Seruwaia Qalivutu on the other team.
Rosa, Mareta, Moeivai and Seruwaia came up with 'Phone Drop' which is a car that doesn't start until the drivers phone is put into a specific place in the car to prevent people from using devices while they are driving.
Irene, Wesley, Rosebud and Ofa came up with the Sai Pe Foundation (Sai Pe being Tongan, meaning 'Okay/All good' or 'Are you okay?') which is an organisation that holds a 6 month program to educate Pasifika parents and children on Depression and Anxiety.
First Place went to the Sai Pe Foundation, this means they get an automatic entry into Dragon's Den. This team will be pitching their idea on Saturday the 30th June to a new panel of judges. Well done to all those involved and good luck!
