MULWAREE On Show is on again this Friday, March 24 and teachers and students are busy in preparation for the annual blockbuster event.
Last year the school had to cater for over 1000 people, so they are taking the food preparation side of things seriously. The Hospitality students were cooking like crazy when the Goulburn Post visited them on Monday, getting in practice for the real thing.
Food stalls featuring treats made by Mulwaree High’s own students will include everything from health fresh salads, nachos to fairy floss, hamburgers, pizzas, curries and more.
Food items aren’t available with cash. Upon admission to the school, through the newly renovated entrance, food tickets are available to purchase from the canteen individually or in booklets of five or 10.
Tickets are then exchanged for food or drinks, depending on how much the meal is worth. Fried rice, for example is worth two tickets while you can expect to use four tickets for Massaman Beef.
The showcase is designed to display the best the school has to offer, from musical and dance performances to hospitality and art.
Event organiser Kalynda Martone said this year is set to impress, with a wide variety of food and entertainment to suit all tastes.
“Activities for families will be provided with displays of Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics, Technology and Applied Studies and agricultural displays. Additional opportunities to explore the school will be available with the award winning Remembrance Library open for viewing and regular guided tours of the school’s wetlands,” Ms Martone said.
“It’s one of the biggest events on the Mulwaree Calendar and for the last few years we have experienced up to 1000 guests on the night to taste food and view the array of music, dancing and overall creative talent displayed by Mulwaree students and staff.”
The night kicks off at 6pm with a $2 entry fee at the gate.
A bumper Raffle on the night includes a variety of wonderful prizes donated by local businesses. Tickets are available for $1 each and prizes will be drawn at various intervals throughout the night.
School farm produce and Stephanie Alexander products will also be available to purchase.
All profits from Mulwaree On Show assist in providing Mulwaree students with enjoyable, safe and engaging learning opportunities.
