Grow it, Cook it, Eat it is a short course which forms part of the level 2 curriculum. We grow, lettuce, tomatoes, beetroot, potatoes, chives, mint and basil. We then prepare dishes with these ingredients such as pesto, pizza sauce, potato wedges, beetroot brownies, cheese and chives jacket potato etc.
Junior Certificate – After completing the level 2 learning programme, our senior classes go on to do the Junior Certificate in Home Economics. We complete this over two years.
Year 1; students complete a Textiles Classroom Based Assessment – CBA1. They must design and produce a useful or decorative household craft.
Year 2; they complete a Cookery Classroom Based Assessment – CBA2. They plan a meal based on a brief supplied by the Department of Education. The students prepare a folder showing their recipe, the reasons for their choice, equipment list, cost etc. They then prepare this meal for their Culinary Skills State Exam in May.
