A little over a year ago the Lion group took over the management of the Olng’arua School kitchen supplies. Since the school opened there always seemed to be problems with the management of the kitchen supplies. Orders would be forgotten, stock too low or perishables gone to waste. You never quite knew if there would be enough food at lunch time or far too much.
However, since the Lion’s have taken over the job the kitchen has been running very smoothly. We now never seem to run out of things mid week, orders are placed on time and there is always just the right amount of food at breakfast and lunch.
The Lion group make the orders and they keep a record of all stock as it comes in. Each morning they weigh and count and put out all the food and other sundries required for the day, and they keep a record of everything they give out. They are hugely efficient store managers and stock takers. Which is great for the school, it saves us money and makes sure everybody gets enough to eat each day. It is also great for them to have such practical experience. It will benefit their own home lives and is a useful skill they can take with them into the work place in a few years from now.
Well done Lions!
