Simonds Claims Second Culinary Title

Simonds Catholic College has once again taken home the prized ACC Culinary competition title, winning a tight contest by solitary point. It is their second win from as many years, and proves that the smallest school in our Association can take on any of the big boys when the heat is on in the kitchen!

The event was held at Holmesglen Institute, who have been hugely supportive of this event since its inception in 2015. They are wonderful hosts, generously providing the staff and facilities, and adding an air of professionalism to the competition. All of the participants enjoyed the opportunity to work as part of a team and gained some valuable experience and feedback in the process.
