The food department was delighted to welcome our new and continuing students for another year of learning this September!
The new students took part in a variety of fun induction events organised by their course managers and have already settled into college life.
Our Higher Education students are studying FdSc/ BSc Food Manufacturing with Business Management and FdSc Dairy Technology. We are proud to be educating the butchers, bakers and cake decorators as well as food and dairy technologists of the future!
The following poem was written by Sam Copeland, Course Manager Level 2 Bakery and Patisserie during a busy week of induction for our FE students…where did she find the time!!
An ode to Reaseheath food students by Sam Copeland
From the giggles in the changing rooms
That’s the girls as well as boys
To the delight of opening up a box
And seeing brand new bakery toys!
From the whispers from the nervous ones
To the guffaws from the not so shy!
To the hellos and embraces in the mornings
To getting on the bus to say goodbye
From the macaroon’s and fruit cake
To the vanilla flavoured drink
From the sunshine getting up so early
To cold mornings oh so brisk!
From stocking up the farm shop
And enjoying tasting cakes
To baking whisking making
And eating lunch down by the lake
To the tutors, technicians and support staff
To the students oh so new
‘clean as you go’ Kat tells us
Then problems will be few
To the dairy or the butchery
To the bakery or P2
Wherever you are heading now
We are all here to help you
Enjoy your days at Reaseheath
Go to lessons don’t be late
The time will pass so quick you see
Before you know- you’ll graduate!!
