2017 Year 4/5 Obento Masterchef

The JLTASA Year 4/5 Obento Masterchef was held on Friday 10th November 2017 at Westminster School. 72 students from 9 schools across all three sectors participated in making an obento (Japanese lunch box).

This year the theme of obento was Family (Kazoku).  Students were paired up and together they planned and designed their obento in line with the theme.  Some included the word “kazoku” in hiragana or kanji using nori sheet in their obento.  They also had a challenge to use as many ingredients as possible to create a visually appealing obento.  There were so many creative obento made by the students and the judge had a hard time.  The fun part was students got to eat their obento at the end!

Thank you to all the teachers and parents for transporting and supervising students. Thank you to Sun Kim and Home Economic staff at Westminster who hosted this event again.
