Thanks to government funding and the enthusiasm of ICT teacher Mr Ihenacho, Fazakerley High School has recently been able to offer a range of new and exciting extracurricular activities. First of all, a seven week workshop on Caribbean Cooking and healthy eating, known as Flavour' has seen pupils creating mouth watering dishes such as salt fish Ackiee and Caribbean fish Escabeche with sticky rice – all from scratch! Each week over a dozen pupils, mostly from Year 7, attended the hour and a half long sessions after school, learning valuable skills and having great fun in the process. Delivered by authentic Caribbean chef, Mr Ansile Nugent, pupils were also given an insight into the culture from which the cuisine emanated. Any parents or pupils who like the sound of the course can go to the Community section of the school's website, where some of the recipes the group tried out can be found.
A further dozen pupils from across all year groups were involved in a series of introductory street dance workshops, another first for the school and a fantastic opportunity for pupils to develop new hobbies while also keeping fit!
Both courses have now concluded, but Mr Ihenacho is not one to rest on his laurels; pupils may soon be able to look forward to a series of free-running workshops in the coming year!
