Cooking up culinary competence

Muskan Mahil, Saveena Rai and Mikayla Ritchie, all entering Grade 8 at Enver Creek Secondary, were among dozens of Surrey students to take part in the SuperChefs program this summer, as did Grade 7 Green Timbers Elementary student Damin Mutti (below).


More than 150 Surrey students have cooked themselves up some tasty kitchen skills this summer.

The students, aged eight to 12, were part of a SuperChefs Cookery for Kids summer camp that provided six weeks of workshops and physical activities.

The workshops, offered in partnership with Surrey Schools, were held at Queen Elizabeth Secondary and Sullivan Heights Secondary.

Surrey-based Fresh St. Market donated ingredients to support the SuperChefs summer program, which was offered to Surrey students free of charge.

"Our students benefit in many ways from the SuperChefs Cookery for Kids summer camp, particularly children and families who are challenged to fund activities or trips over the summer break," says Surrey Board of Education chairperson Shawn Wilson. "It's been wonderful partnering with SuperChefs over the last six years to offer such a great learning experience for children that also happens to be so engaging and entertaining."
