Narrmoine High School students get dairy creative in the kitchen

Students from Narromine High School will be whipping up a storm in the kitchen, thanks to the Great Ocean Road Dairy 'Cheese Your Own Creation' program.

During the program, the 25 students will be divided into teams of two to design their own imaginative dairy creation to bring to life.

The student chefs will then develop and make the recipe and submit a photo of the creation to be judged. Twelve recipes will then be selected for inclusion in the 2020 Great Ocean Road Calendar.

'Cheese Your Own Creation'is taught as part of Narromine High School's food technology classes and involves students and teachers from almost 100 schools across Australia.

Food technology teacher at Narromine High School, Simone Googe said her students are having a lot of fun learning about all things dairy through the Great Ocean Road program.

"'Cheese Your Own Creation'is encouraging our students to use their imagination to bring amazing creations to life out of everyday dairy products," she said.

"I am so impressed with the nutritious meals our students are creating with simple ingredients like milk and cheese."


Great Ocean Road Senior Brand Manager Tracy Wong said 'Cheese Your Own Creation' makes important links between the dairy industry, schools and local community.

"Great Ocean Road and Saputo Dairy Australia are proud to support the'Cheese your Own Creation' program, which is a great opportunity for local students to get creative while learning about the wide range of career opportunities in Australia's exciting dairy industry," she said.

Great Ocean Road also gives students and teacher supporting resources and curriculum, a $100 gift voucher to purchase products and a copy of the 2019 Great Ocean Road calendar for creative inspiration.

"Through the program, students gain an understanding of the dairy industry, the nutritional value of its products and the importance of the industry to regional economies - all while having lots of fun in the kitchen," Ms Wong said.

"I'm excited to see what the students at Narromine High School create and trying my hand at some of their recipes."

The 12 winning creations will receive $250 for their school.

The winners will be announced on 4th November 2019.
