Ship shape in class; Schoolvisit.

YEAR 10 catering students at Whitley Academy learned how to cook healthy meals from two Royal Navy chefs.

The educational visit was based around the Navy's 'Fit to Fight, Fit for Life' program, which teaches young people about not only staying fit and eating healthily, but about how this ties in with the rigour of military life.

An enjoyable experience was had by all, with the students cooking their own version of the Navy's take on chicken korma, followed by being taught about the Navy way of life, including training, nutrition and how to use a 24-hour ration pack, as given to all serving military personnel.

This was followed by a demonstration from the chefs, showing students how to make a healthy version of meatballs and pasta with a student volunteer as sous chef.

To finish the day off, Year 10 all took part in some team building exercises used by the Navy, designed not only to build camaraderie but also to stimulate the thought process needed to solve problems in real life situations.
