DATE CLAIMER- BIGGEST MORNING TEA

WEDNESDAY 17 June

8.30am – 10.30 am

Kitchen Garden Gazebo. Come along and support this wonderful charity.

Our Maleny Show competition entries were very well rewarded last fortnight with KG classes winning 10 awards! Our Preppies won third place for their gorgeous ginger bread soldier army. Miss Pollard’s 1W class won second place for their chocolate sauce and received a third for their class effort at drawing (ANZAC themed.) Year 2G were awarded first for their tapenade, second for their traditional hummus and the bronze for their ricotta. Miss Evan’s 2M class received first for their beetroot hummus, second for pesto, bronze for butter AND second overall in the class drawing section (ANZAC themed also.)

This is a fantastic result for GCC and many children were excited to see their winning entries at the show. Lillian Smyth and Lily Monos each personally received a highly commended award for their individual drawings…. well done!

This week classes made penne pasta with rocket and seed pesto. Many children (and staff) asked for the recipe so here it is:

  • 1 x 500 gram packet of penne pasta cooked according to directions.
  • 1 bunch of rocket, finely chopped.
  • 2 tablespoons (or more if you like) of grated Parmesan
  • 100 grams of toasted seeds (pumpkin/sunflower/pine nuts any combination)
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Place rocket, parmesan, seeds, olive oil, salt and pepper into the bowl of a food processor. Whizz until finely chopped and smooth adding more olive oil if needed.  Stir through pasta and serve with extra Parmesan if desired. Cooked, shredded chicken can also be added.

Serves 6
