Sixth Form Student’s Recipe for Success

Throughout this year the hospitality and catering group in sixth form have been working hard to develop and extend their skills, confidence and competency within the kitchen environment. This session not only supports the students to enhance their own abilities when preparing food but also stretches and challenges each learner to explore the catering careers sector and gain a better understanding of the skills they have and need to move into a job in this area in the future. Each student has worked incredibly hard to overcome challenges and improve their knowledge and understanding. We have had some fabulous employer encounters, most recently from the wonderful Farida from Buzzrock Café in Hulme, who gave everyone a real insight into what it is like to work in a busy takeaway café. Our next challenge will be for all learners to achieve their Food Hygiene level 1 certificate, a real achievement that will have real currency for any students moving into this sector in the future. Well done to everyone!!

MHS Culture and Diversity Celebration

On May 10th, the whole school community attended the fabulous Melland High School Celebration of Culture and Diversity Day. The event was a huge success with an amazing turnout from students, parents, carers and families. The theatre was filled with a wide range of interactive stalls, games and competitions to help the students learn about culture and diversity.  We had delicious food and drink prepared and donated by families which was much appreciated by all, and the atmosphere was one of belonging, respect and enjoyment of our diverse school population.  Melland High School community has over 16 ethnicities and 22 home languages. Many of our students and staff are proud to be bilingual and this was reflected on the day.

 This was followed in the afternoon by a whole school assembly on the theme of Culture and Diversity. This included live performances from students, a traditional clothing parade where students wore their outfits with pride, and music selected by students to share with others as well as opportunities to reflect on what culture and diversity looks like and means to us.

What a wonderful day highlighting our whole school ethos of belonging and based on one of our key principles – to promote, respect and value diversity.
