The Grade 11 Health Care class (TPJ3M) delved deep into experiential learning this week. We spent a class in the YMCA commercial kitchen cooking Macaroni and Cheese with a focus on careers in the kitchen for Health Care and cooking for various health conditions.
With the Mac & Cheese complete we had students take on the role of patient and then health care worker and experience the sensation of being differently abled and needing assistance with eating. Our workshop was delivered by Malcolm MacFarlane who shared his experiences and expertise from his time as a chef at Casey House (A hospice providing compassionate palliative and supportive care for people living with HIV or AIDS).
