The Catering department and year 10 students hosted a very special evening at Barry Comprehensive School on Thursday 23rd May. The evening was hosted to support LATCH, a charity that the school has supported for some time.
Year 10 students cooked a wide range of dishes, showcasing much of their work over the last year. There was a range of delicious canapés, including miniature Glamorgan sausages with plum chutney, bacon on lava bread bites and succulent meatballs in a homemade sauce. This was followed by a choice of bruschetta or leek and potato soup served with bread made by the students. Both choices were absolutely delicious. Diners, including governors, teachers and parents, could then choose lasagne or Valencian paella; again, both were excellent and full of flavour, served very hot and in hearty portion sizes. Those with any room to spare were offered rhubarb and apple crumble with homemade custard or tiramisu.
Mr Lyn Howell, a key patron of Latch, made a short presentation on the history of LATCH, really emphasising the crucial work of this charity. He was presented with a cheque for £150, the money raised by our students through this evening’s hard work.
Mrs Lancaster and Mr Pereira had worked very hard in organising this excellent evening and the catering department’s ‘restaurant’ was a real credit to their hard work and continued commitment. The year 10 students were first rate in everything they did, from the quality of the food to the superb presentation and the friendly service.
Mr McNamara, Headteacher, commented, ‘There is nothing better than having a very tasty meal in the company of friends. The quality of food, presentation and service was excellent. The school has supported LATCH for years and is determined to sustain its commitment to the charity that provides so much to children and their families’.
