SEC Practical

Dear Senior 5,

As I told you, next Tuesday 17th January, you have the second SEC Practical. On the day, you need to get recipes for meals and drinks suitable for different possible scenarios. Some possible scenarios include:

1. A pregnant woman
2. Someone who suffers of high blood pressure (also known as hypertension)
3. School-aged children
4. Vegetarians (lacto vegetarian and lacto-ovo vegetarian)
5. Someone suffering of constipation or diverticular disease (so you need to have a meal high in fibre)
6. An athlete or someone very active. (so get recipes high in carbohydrates e.g. pasta)
7. Someone who is overweight or obese thus needs to follow a slimming diet. (E.g. a dish with chicken or fish would be ideal)
8. Someone who suffers of heart disease / CHD.
9. Someone who is diabetic.
10. Someone who is lactose intolerant (no milk or dairy)
11. Someone who is coeliac (no wheat products)
12. Someone who has a sedentary job (always sitting down e.g. secretary – So no food high in carbs as they do not use a lot of energy)
13. Elderly people.
Here is the assessment criteria which I follow: Assessment Criteria for Practical Sessions   and this is the sample Preparation Sheet:  Preparation Sheet Sample Work
Please also note that the deadline for the investigation is 31st January.

Senior 5 Investigations

Dear Senior 5,

I hope that you are all having a good weekend. Another gentle reminder that next Tuesday 29th November you have the Home Ec test.

I would also like to say well done to those of you who have continued working on the investigation. On another note, I would like to inform you that by the 10th of December all of you have to send me the investigation from the Brief Analysis till the Results, Analysis and Conclusion of Technique 1. This mark will be inputted on Powerschool and therefore those of you who do not adhere to this deadline will be marked as missing HW and Ms. Giselle will be informed.

Please bare with me. I have 12 investigations to correct (apart from other assignments and general corrections) and I correct word by word as you know. Therefore I can’t have you sending me the entire investigation during the Christmas holidays. Thus these deadlines are important and you must respect them please.

Regards

Ms. Edera
