The Food Hygiene Game, a training resource approved by REHIS, which we originally reported on in an article in Januaryhas made its way to Tonga.

Focus Games, the developer of the game, donated three free games to the REHIS president and IEHF representatives to take to the 15th World Congress on Environmental Health in Auckland, New Zealand in March 2018. 

Although one of the games was won by an attendee from Ireland, it was donated to Bronwyn Thompson from Australia to take with to her volunteer placement in Tonga within the Ministry of Health. 

Bronwyn Thompson played this game with the Health Inspectors from the Ministry of Health and stated it was: “fiercely fought battle with lots and banter and questions leading to chocolate as a final prize”

She also went on to say: “The game was greatly enjoyed by all and has started some conversations about how to impart and encourage learning in other areas of environmental health.”

The photo above shows some of the team playing the first game in the main office in Nuku'alofa Tonga.

The Food Hygiene Game wasdeveloped by Focus Games Ltdand is an educational board game for up to 12 players, which tests and reinforces knowledge delivered on the course in a fun and interactive way.

The Food Hygiene Game is ideally suited for structured food hygiene training courses, or as an informal learning activity in the hospitality or catering industry. It is also a fantastic resource for food education in Home Economics, Food Technology or other food related classes at school or college.
