The Intermediate II Hospitality class enjoyed tasting a variety of Italian foods recently as part of their research into Foods of the World. Pupils tucked into cheeses, polenta, breads, olives and olive oil, pesto and risotto with mixed results. The dessert dishes were much more favourably received, especially the biscotti and tiramisu.
Our Lady’s is proud to be one of only three secondary schools in North Lanarkshire to receive the North Lanarkshire International Education Award for promoting pupils’ knowledge of global issues and Scottish culture.
The Award recognises both classwork and extra-curricular initiatives such as the school’s continuing links with the Kamwokya Community in Uganda, our Citizens’ Cafe, the Sensory Garden and St Andrew’s Day celebrations, along with a variety of research tasks including Scottish mysteries, musical instruments worldwide and food culture in Italy.
Headteacher, Mrs Kathleen Sinclair and Depute Head, Mr John Crossan received the award on behalf of the school from Mrs Christine Pollock, Executive Director of Learning and Leisure Services for North Lanarkshire Council.
