Macmillan Coffee Morning

Southam College are pleased to be supporting the Macmillan Charity this year with our coffee morning. The Macmillan charity support people affected by cancer. 
Staff and students are being asked to bring in a variety of cakes to the Philosophy and Ethics office on the morning of Friday 5th November. This is part of our World Kindness celebrations. 

All cakes will be available to staff and students at break and lunchtime for a small donation. 

Thank you for your support!

Food Preparation and Nutrition

This week our Year 11 GCSE Food Preparation and Nutrition students have continued their study of raising agents.  They were given the choice of either making Rough Puff Pastry or Choux Pastry.  Both pastries are high skilled and take some hard work and patience to perfect.  Students made the Rough Puff Pastry into Mille Feuille, with the addition of cream and Strawberries.  The Choux buns were filled with cream and dipped in chocolate to make Profiteroles.  Some delicious desserts for Y11 to enjoy. 

Well done.  Mrs James.
