Random Quotes

“The classroom session gave the students a good lead into our nutrition focus for the term. The supermarket task provided an authentic situation in which they could practise identifying the nutritional value of many of the foods eaten on a daily basis – they really enjoyed the practical aspect of this and the results of their investigation generated a good deal of discussion back at school.”
