Last Wednesday, 22nd of November, saw the start of the new round of the Survival Cooking course, the first of this school year. The course is organised by the AMPA and Ausolán, with the support of the School. Three successful sessions were held last year among S6 and S7 students.

Most of our sons and daughters pursue their higher education away from home, often in a different country to the rest of their family. In such circumstances, it is easy to fall back on quick fixes for meals if you don’t have a canteen to go to or a family to organise your day-to-day life.

This survival cooking course aims to provide the school’s older students with one of the essential tools for life: learning a set of basic skills and knowledge that will enable them to eat a healthy and balanced diet, away from ultra-processed products.
