Hundreds of people gathered at McCarthy College on Friday, March 1, to hear Sarah Morice and Ian ‘‘Dicko’’ Dickson from 2UE for their breakfast show, with special guests from MasterChef The Professionals.
Year 10 hospitality students cooked breakfeast which was judged by MasterChef finalists Nick Whitehouse and Coop Woodstone.
“The best thing any kid can do is pick up a frying pan and cook,” Mr Whitehouse said.
‘‘Dicko’’ said schools have become the main centre of the community and it was important to invest in their future.
“A lot of kids probably don’t listen to our show so we prefer to engage with friends and family in person,” said Dicko.
There was also an apprentice challenge with entertainers, Rob Mills and Prinnie Stevens, from the new season of Celebrity Apprentice working with students studying a range of trades through McCarthy’s Trade Training program in a race to the finish to see who could put together a cabinet the quickest.
In a close finish the Celebrity Apprentice team were victorious against the ApprenticePower team.
