Year 10 English Presentation: Food and Celebration
FRIDAY 9TH OCTOBER 2020: On this day, the students of Grade 10 held a presentation on food and celebration during their English class.
The functionality of our body systems is largely dependent on the energy produced by the nutrients absorbed from the digested foods. Similarly, food serves as a symbol representing different groups of people since each ethnicity and/or race would serve a particular food species in commemoration of their cultural events and celebrations.
Following a lengthy discussion under the theme of food and fitness, grade 10 students were assigned a task of researching a wide variety of foods from different parts of the world for a presentation in the subsequent class. After thorough research, the students identified some famous foods and desserts (i.e. Turkey, Mooncakes, Fortune cookies, Sheer Khurma, Vermicelli, Yule log and Jalebi) with details such as origins, how they are prepared and the celebrations in which they are usually served.
