Food & Fabric Technology Teacher


General Information

Hi my name is Trish Thurston, and I am delighted to join the wonderful team at Morrinsville Intermediate School, as Food and Fabric Technology Teacher.
Having spent the last few years working with Life Education in Hamilton, I am keen to involve students in creating healthy balanced meals, with largely whole foods. With gardening, and art, as well as food being three of my passions, I am very excited about the merging of all of these areas in to the Food Tech programme.
I am an experienced teacher, who has taught across primary, secondary and tertiary areas, as well as having been involved in the food and catering industry, and feel right at home in a kitchen.
I hope to inspire students to experience confidence through success and to think about what opportunities there might be in the creative and technology areas for the future.
