“By far and away the best school I attended...” bullet2

Food Technology

What is Food Technology?

Food Technology is one strand of the National Technology Curriculum. The focus is no longer just a manual skills based programme, but one of research, design, planning, problem solving, development of ideas, use of technological practices, and evaluation of outcomes.

Competitions have played an important part of Food Technology.  Hebron were the "runners-up" in the last Activate TV competition.
Best in the North Island. We also participated in the Maggi Kitchen Show down.

Year 9 Class (1 term)

Year 9 spend their time at Food Technology focusing on serving others. The unit is called "Hospitality". Romans 12:13 "Always be eager to practise hospitality"
I Peter 4:9 "Cheerfully share your home with those who need a meal or a place to stay"
Hebrews 13:2 "Don't forget to show hospitality to strangers, for some who have done this have entertained angels without realising it". Each lesson is based on a real life situation, with briefs ranging from a planned meal or afternoon tea for invited guests, to a meal for  unexpected visitors, plus caring for those less fortunate.


Year 9 made cookies for the residents at Everil Orr Village at Christmas.

The next unit is a look at current health issues, and how to cook for those with specific needs. These may include: diabetes, gluten intolerance, low GI/high GI debate, wholegrains, fats, vegetarianism, anti oxidants, probiotics, omega 3, organic food. Each student will choose a current topic, present their findings to the class, and choose a suitable recipe for everyone to make. The students became teachers for a time.We finished 2015 with an "Unleash your creativity" assignment, where the students had to design and make a "hamburger" that looked like a typical burger but was a dessert.. This was a very popular unit and the creativity was amazing.
