Food Technology

Food Technology at Berengarra School is practically based, aiming to provide students with a basic knowledge and understanding of sound nutrition, food preparation and cooking principles, all vital to their future and well being.

As many students at Berengarra School have frequently experienced failure, both academically and socially, Food Technology can provide many practical experiences in which the student can achieve, and consequently develop his/her self esteem so they are equipped to function effectively in other areas of life.

As a member of a multicultural society, Food Technology also introduces students to experiences of other cultures, thus helping to equip them with knowledge and insight to accept and live with a broad spectrum of individuals. Much of the work covered is in line with the design, creativity, technology, health and physical education domains of VELS, with activities being presented in an integrated fashion.
