Future Chef ‘Young Chef of the Year’ Competition


Two Year 10 students excelled as chefs by competing in the FutureChef ‘Young Chef of the Year’ competition at Yeovil College. The competition was judged by two professional chefs who gave valuable advice and expertise to both students.

Billy and Katie were up against several schools in the South West. Their task was to plan and produce a two-course meal within 90 minutes, on a £7 budget. Both students created stunning plates of food and should be incredibly proud of themselves. 

Katie made ‘Chicken Ramen followed by Chocolate Orange Cakes and Orange Cream’ and Billy made ‘Chicken and Pesto Calzone and Caesar Salad followed by Chocolate and Cherry Mousse’.

Both Katie and Billy were a credit to St Dunstan’s and should use this experience to develop their cooking skills and techniques further. I am very proud of what they have achieved and look forward to them competing in more cooking competitions in the future. 

We are very proud. Well done!

Miss Tourle and Mrs Pallister

Christmas Tree Festival


As part of the Christmas Tree Festival held in St John’s Church, students from the School Council have worked together to make decorations for a tree. The festival has 50 Christmas trees, local companies and schools make a donation for a tree and then decorate it to their own theme. The theme for the St Dunstan’s School tree is ‘Nurturing the Future’ and each decoration has been designed to represent a growing, sparkling flower.

The festival will run from Sunday 11 December – Friday 6 January 2017. Admission is free but donations are welcome.

The ‘Great’ St Dunstan’s Bake-Off


Students recently took part in the fourth annual ‘Great St Dunstan’s Bake-Off’; the theme this year was chocolate and – to noone’s surprise -the bake-off was inundated with entries. Students had two hours to complete their chocolate showstopper, but there was one catch … no cakes!

Miss Tourle, Head of Design and Technology faculty said:

“Students worked very hard to create their masterpieces. I am incredibly proud of what was achieved in the space of two hours. All students who took part received a certificate and 10 Housepoints. The overall winner was Amber Chapman who created an amazing chocolate brownie trifle with home-made cherry kirsch jelly – it was delicious!”.

“We had three judges for the event. I would like to thank Sue Tucker, Kate Gallagher and Lucy James for taking the time out of their busy baking lives to judge the event.”

“All students should be very proud of themselves and I look forward to seeing them battle it out in the next Great Bake Off.”

“A fantastic event which makes me feel proud to be their teacher! Well done.”
