Wine & Cheese Tasting! October 11th

Last Friday afternoon’s activity was the very popular Wine & Cheese Tasting! ๐Ÿ˜€

Students from the morning and afternoon classes gathered at 5.30pm to enjoy the free wine and cheese that we had prepared in front of the school.

The students were welcome to help themselves to the range of wines including: Merlot, Shiraz, Sauvignon Blanc, Rose and Moscato.

We also had seven different cheeses to try: brie, camenbert, gouda, gorgonzoula, apricot & cream cheese, spring onion & chives and tasty cheddar.

It didn’t take long before everything was devoured and the students set off into town to continue the Friday celebrations ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope you all had a great weekend! ๐Ÿ™‚

What better way to kick of the long Australia Day weekend than with some wine tasting in the garden! It was a beautiful sunny day – the perfect backdrop to our Friday activity. We had a range of wines to choose from – the reds: Merlot & Shiraz, the whites: Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc & Muscato and also a Rose.

In an effort to be mindful of our environment and plastic waste, we collected all cups after the tasting, to be washed and refreshed for future tastings ๐Ÿ˜‰

Everyone enjoyed the wines but the clear favourites seemed to be the Shiraz and the sweet Muscato!
