HOSPITALITY students at John Wollaston Anglican Community School have been busy in the school’s kitchen, cooking up large batches of soup for the Salvation Army.

Last week Year 11 students cooked up 35 litres of minestrone soup while practising their precision cutting and food production skills.

“The Year 7s are also asking for donations to help with the soup cooking as well,” community relations officer Rachel Tierney said.

“They have been working with the Salvation Army as part of a year-long Encounter program that involves many sessions with the Salvos and visiting their premises and facilities.”

Each year group at John Wollaston has a different Encounter program with a different focus.

Ms Tierney said the school was calling for donations of ingredients from local suppliers.
