Recently, several students from Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School visited the Schroth School in Ocean Township to participate in art therapy activities and take part in the “Empty Bowls” initiative.

Located in Wanamassa, Schroth School serves students in grades Pre-Kindergarten through twelve, and offers a comprehensive educational program including sensory, mobility, fine motor, social, and thematic language/literary experiences.

NEW CLUB COOKING UP FUN AT RFH

RFHcooking5Press release from Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School

On a recent evening, the aroma of vegetarian dishes filled the kitchen of St. George’s By the River Episcopal Church in Rumson. The clattering of pots and pans and the friendly banter of the students was interrupted by directions of “Mackenzie, check on your rice!,” and “Leela, lower the flame!”

When Leela Srinivasan, Jacquelyn (Jackie) Bruckmann, and Meredith Apicella cooked up the idea last year to begin a new club at Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School, they dedicated themselves wholeheartedly to publicizing the venture and drumming up interest.

As a result of their hard work, 17 RFH students now participate actively in the creation of delicious meals and the exploration of exciting cuisines.

RFH Head Librarian Linda Wien Murray is the Advisor to the Cooking Club, now in its first year at RFH. Murray, who earned a degree in pastry at the Institute of Culinary Education (ICE) in New York City, also supervised a program of cooking classes for Brookdale Community College from 1998 – 2003.
