A Spanish proverb says “A man too busy to take care of his health is like a mechanic too busy to take care of his tools”. We all know that heath is wealth for each one of us. Here in Birla High school we have always endeavour to inculcate heathy habits among our pupils and taking a step in the same direction , the Heath and Wellness club of the school organised an interhouse culinary contest on the 30th of April 2013 in the school premises. The preparations for the
contest began with the advent of the new session wherein the 5 participants from each house were selected through a written screening test. The selection was followed by vehement discussions and planning by each of the teams. On the D-day, the teams were buzzing with excitement even as they arranged the aprons, chef caps, gloves, food items, table spread, knives, grater and many more things that would be required to fight the culinary war among the various teams. Apollo hospital Nutritionist Mrs khurana arrived at the venue for the contest as a special judge for the event. She was assisted by Mrs R. Bubna and Mrs Chotrani from the faculty of the school. The judges were pleasantly surprised and impressed by the innovative and efficient chefs in the making. Ranging from nutritious cakes to healthy cucumber canoes to heathy salads garnished with baked paneer to healthy mango panna, all were included in the menu. All teams deserved to be the winners but one team had to be selected as the best one. It was the Ashok house team that scored a little more above the others and emerged the winner team. At the end of the day the message was loud and clear – As shakespeare said, ‘Our bodies are our gardens – our wills are our gardeners.” And we Bhsians like to have fine gardens.
