Easy as apple pie

Kimberley Independent School students made apple pies for Thanksgiving.

Preparing apples for homemade pit at Kimberley Independent School.

“Friday Pie Day” was the shout heard up and down the hallway at Kimberley Independent School on Friday 5th October. The students embarked on a Thanksgiving endeavour that would place a pie in the hands of each family to further brighten their celebrations. All students, from pre-Kindergarten to grade 9, took part in the creation of over 110 pies. The day was highly educational with students learning traditional skills, being challenged to follow instructions, measure accurately, and scale up the recipe to a suitably grand scale. The students clearly had an excellent time and consumed litres of fresh apple juice in the process.

The day proved to be a huge success, however it would not have been possible without the help and support provided by our families and community members. We would especially like to thank Overwaitea Foods who donated the pie ingredients for the second year in a row. Above,
