Vibrancy in Innovation Design
Secondary Three Food and Nutrition students had to prepare ethnic dishes. Examples of some ethnic dishes whipped were 'huat kueh', 'roti jala' with chocolate sauce instead of curry and also 'Jui Kueh'. The VID project of Sec 3 Diligence was showcased during the Food and Consumer Seminar 2015 at the Academy of Singapore Teachers in November 2015.

Teacher-led Culinary Workshop
FCE teachers from 17 secondary schools attended the teacher-led workshop held at Springfield Secondary School on 27 August 2015, conducted by our veteran teacher, Mrs Angela Sim. Teachers had a hands-on session in making the traditional Kueh Pie Tee, to revive the culinary skills in making the almost scarcely found traditional dish.

Learning Journey to Singapore Hotel and Tourism Education Centre (SHATEC)
Students went for a hands-on session in their specialised culinary school. The students learned to make pasta from scratch as well as explore the versatility of the commonly used ingredient, eggs.

Swensen Ice Cream Making Competition organised by Nanyang Polytechnic
Secondary One students are exposed to Ice Cream Making competition to spark their interest to explore beyond what is being taught in Food and Consumer Education lessons. This experience will encourage the students to be innovative and persevere as they concoct new flavours to Ice-cream.
