Students discover why fish should be the dish of the day
Students at St Helena School landed an important lesson- the benefits of eating fish.
Colchester Institute worked with London Billingsgate Seafood School to stage a roadhow at the nearby school in Sheepen Road.
Students were also able to learn about sourcing ethical produce and preparation techniques.
They also handled many types of fish, including trout, monkfish, crab and herring, to prepare them for the fish filleting element of the new GCSE Food Technology syllabus.
Paula Williams, Schools Co-ordinator at Billingsgate Seafood School said schools need to know about where fish comes from as well as the many varieties of fish that can be eaten for starter, mains and snacks.
