This project was an opportunity for students to be in control of their own learning. All the passion projects inspired an interest in learning and focused on strengthening problem-solving and self-management skills. 

One of the projects was Masterchef where students learned how to measure, melt, mix, and chop ingredients to create a number of food creations.

The students worked in groups of 4 and were selected from the Ohaaki team. They learned to manage themselves while working as part of a group. They had to share and make sure everyone had a turn doing something in the process of making their food item.   Icing-2.jpg

The students also kept a record of the recipes they made in their own books.  They discussed what they enjoyed the most about making these food creations and explained how tasty they were.
