The school decided to go through a review process following changes to the school’s branding. Lincoln High School principal Kathy Paterson said the uniform was due for a review. “The uniform is a significant change, it’s very exciting for the school,” Mrs Paterson said. The uniform change will involve swapping out the polo top for a fitted shirt, adding a tie, blazer and a jumper and changing a kilt for a navy blue skirt. The uniform will be introduced for year nine students next year, students in year 10-12 can either wear the old uniform or the new one. Mrs Paterson said this way the school can minimise costs for families having to get new uniforms. She said the students felt very proud wearing the new uniform. “We went through an extensive review process, it took roughly 18 months to complete the process,” she said. TWO SELWYN girls have packed their fry pans and sharpened their knives to compete in a national culinary competition. Emily Perkins of Hororata and Bridget James of Whitecliffs are competing in the National Secondary Schools Culinary Challenge in Auckland today after they won the Christchurch regional final. To get into the final the pair had to create four portions of entree and main meals in 90min. The girls made herbed silverbeet and feta galette rested upon carved venison loin with beetroot, pinot noir and balsamic reduction, crispy salad of rainbow chard stems, finished with silverbeet flakes. For a main they cooked chicken breast stuffed with mozzarella, semi-dried tomatoes and NEW WITH THE OLD: Abby Kettles (left) models the new uniform which will be compulsory for year 9 students from next year while sister Lucy wears the current uniform.

Over the last week the school held fittings for the new uniform and the parent and student feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. She said the students who modelled the new uniforms liked them. Competition for budding chefs interest when she took hospitality last year. The girls have never had a serious kitchen incident, apart from one problem with a tea towel. “We had a tea towel catch fire but that was only in practice, thankfully, it wasn’t in front of anyone,” Emily said. Emily said the judging was the scary part. “They taste the food but remain expressionless so it’s kind of like the cooking shows, you don’t know what they think,” she said. Teacher of hospitality at Christchurch Girls High School, Holly Caird, said the year 13 students were practising at every chance they got. “Emily and Bridget took on board the judges’ comments during the regional event and have made some changes to their dishes,” she said.
