Students at EJ Dunn Elementary in Port Alberni learn to make Christmas dinner

EJ Dunn Elementary School hosted their annual turkey lunch on Wednesday, Dec. 20.

The tradition goes back to when EJ Dunn was a middle school, and older students would take on the turkey dinner as part of their curriculum.

Now, teacher Moira Barney trains older students in the kitchen at the Early Years Centre.

“We train leadership students up in the kitchen,” she said. “They do most everything from scratch.”

Students from all grades got to take part in the annual lunch, which was cooked by students and served by volunteers from Eighth Avenue Learning Centre and the SD70 board.
