In the second contribution from Ashwood School, Daniel Edwards gives us the lowdown on cooking 227 sausages in one hour for a group of seriously hungry Ashwood students, all in the name of DW2013.

You can also check out two awesome DW2013 poems created by students at Ashwood:

Last week was Dukes Week. On Wednesday 7th of August the four students doing their Silver Award at Ashwood School cooked 227 yummy sausages in 1 hour for a sausage sizzle lunch.  The Silvers needed to work as a team to get the sausages finished on time for the whole Secondary Department to eat.

Sam and Alex cooked the sausages and Aidan and I cut the sausages and placed them on the BBQ. We had to put a tray underneath the BBQ because the fat from the sausages was leaking. I had to help Mr Harper clean the grease from the BBQ. It was a grotty job.

After lunch the Secondary School had a Skills Showcase where we showed what we do in our elective and skill program. There were 9 electives we all had a look at. We looked at Scrapbooking, Drums, Bike Maintenance, Lego Construction, Board Games, iPads and laptops, Performing Arts and Art & Crafts. They were very entertaining to see.

On Thursday 8th August the students & staff at our school had a very well presented and delicious morning tea. Awards Victoria gave us the morning tea to say thank you for helping them collate the record books each year. There was a lot of food to eat. Some was healthy and some less healthy. My favourite was the cinnamon donuts. The School was presented with a plaque from the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) from Awards Victoria, Mr Roger McKinnon in appreciation for our enthusiasm.
