Kitchen Challenge at Bendigo Senior Secondary College: More than a cooking class!

The BSSC Kitchen Challenge is underway and students are definitely up to the task.
The Bendigo Advertiser recently featured the program and the stars of the program, the students in an article that discusses how The Kitchen Challenge program is more than learning to cook.

Bendigo Advertiser excerpt:

“It might look like an episode of MasterChef, but these students are in it for more than an opportunity to bone up on their cooking skills.

The BSSC Kitchen Challenge is a personal development program, first and foremost.

Chef Rob Rees said each of the 11 participants came from different backgrounds.

Some were in Year 11, others in Year 12. A number of the participants are from NETschool Bendigo, which re-engaged young people who have left or are at risk of leaving mainstream schooling.

While some of the participants might have studied hospitality before, others have not.

“Their skills base is really good,” he said.

So good, in fact, that he had to scrap the content he had planned for weeks four and five and start afresh”
