Titanic Project 2017: staff lunch

A highlight of our Titanic Project is the lunch for staff. Pupils help staff to prepare a variety of food and sell tickets. Everyone pays the same but they don’t know until they arrive whether they will receive a 1st, 2nd or 3rd class meal, which is selected at random.

Our 1st class passengers are courteously escorted to their seats where they enjoy a feast of salad, baked potatoes, ham, cheese and fruit, followed by strawberry tarts, all washed down with sparkling fruit juice.

2nd class enjoyed fruit, bread and cold meat with cartons of fruit juice and fairy cakes, while 3rd class feasted on bread, cheese and water. Attempts by certain 3rd class passengers to bribe pupils into handing over strawberry tarts came to nothing, although 2nd class took pity on them and handed over their remaining cakes. It was noted that 1st class were not so generous!

Titanic Project – Shipboard Lunch

The Titanic class organised a lunch for staff, with 1st, 2nd and 3rd class menus. Staff were asked to select a ticket at random, at which point our Titanic stewards appeared and asked to see their ticket, then escorted them to their seats (1st class), showed them the way (2nd) or pointed in the general direction of the right table (3rd).

The entire group also provided a welcome to staff, and explained that profits from the lunch would be donated to the RNLI.

Many thanks to Mrs Stemplis and Miss Carnegy from the Home Economics.
