We kindly request parents and carers to support this event by cooking and providing bulk quantities of their traditional cultural dishes to sell at this event.

Now we have 920 Years 5-12 students enrolled on campus, plus their 90-100 teachers and admin staff.

We are obviously NOT asking parents to cook 1,000 meals (!!) but this is the total potential visitor number to be fed between all the various cuisines.

So let’s say 10 different cuisines x 100 meals each OR 10 different cuisines x 2 traditional dishes x 50 each… something like that…

Obviously the more parents and cuisines and dishes – the less cooking quantities for everybody!

Please keep your recipe ingredients grocery shopping receipts for full reimbursement by the College.

These ‘Multicultural Masterchef’ volunteers should please register their interest with our College’s Major Event Services Manager Mr Colin Mason to receive further information and advice – 

Parents who can help with on-site food preparation and counter service during this major event would also be greatly appreciated!
