Grenada: Making Pizza at Vendome RC School

Making Pizza at Vendome School in Grenada.

Last year I visited Vendome RC School in Grenada for the second time bringing them second hand books for their library which had  been donated by my local friends.  As I have already told you about the school (click here for the post) some of the children will not eat from school lunch one day until school lunch the following day!

I had asked the Head Teacher if I could cook something with the older children when I returned the following year.  She was all for it and asked if I could make pizza as even though there is a Pizza Hut in the capital St Georges most of these children would never have the chance to sample this.  Sure I said, pizza it will be!!

So fast forward to our visit this year to Grenada for the 4th Annual Grenada Chocolate Festival.  We (Mr R and myself) were staying after the festival finished and to coincide with the arrival of a barrel of books and other school supplied that we had sent from the UK we arrived at the school with plans to empty the barrel and then to make some pizza.

The pupils from the 6th Grade/Year 6 were really excited to help open the barrel – you would have thought it was Christmas!

Mr R had all he could do to empty the barrel in an orderly manner!

Whilst still at home I tried to think of all the equipment we could possibly need such as bowls, pizza pans, mini muffin pans, rolling pins etc. Not being sure where I could get these things I brought them with me. I got the first group of children mixing the dough and kneading it.

There was cheese to grate,

dough to kneed,

ham to chop

We made flat pizzas

and mini pizzas – the kids loved filling the little holes with the pizza dough

then filling them in.

The children had such a good time, there were smiles and laughter all around.

A very successful pizza making party if ever there was one and with plenty to go around!
I am planning to return to the school next year with more supplies for the library and a cooking class.  I haven’t decided what I will make but I am sure the children will have fun.
