Food Technology

At Rangeview Intermediate, we believe in nurturing well-rounded individuals who are not only academically competent but also equipped with practical life skills. That’s why our Food Technology program plays a vital role in providing our students with a comprehensive understanding of nutrition, cooking techniques, and the importance of healthy eating. Through hands-on experiences in our  kitchen facilities, students delve into the world of food preparation and develop a deep appreciation for culinary arts.

In our Food Technology classes, students are encouraged to explore a wide range of ingredients, flavors, and cultural cuisines. They learn to follow recipes, experiment with different cooking methods, and gain confidence in their culinary abilities. Students will be guided in understanding the nutritional value of ingredients, making informed food choices, and practicing food hygiene and safety. By engaging in practical tasks, students develop valuable life skills that will benefit them long after they leave our school.
