What began as a distant dream for Subject Coordinator, Chef Tamar Blei, became reality when, for the second year running, students in WIZO Beit Hakerem’s cookery stream worked on projects in both theory and practice, producing a three course meal with starter, main course and dessert all based on one main ingredient.
The students approached their Bagrut (matriculation) exam seriously and with the highest professionalism, and enjoyed the support and encouragement of the entire school staff. Proud parents were also invited for a tasting.
The examiner judging the students complimented them and their supervising chef, assuring them that “you can be proud of yourselves. Your results and presentation are commendable”.
Congratulations to WIZO Beit Hakerem and all the students involved in an educational endeavor that was both exciting and moving!
