From soil to plate, a beetroot’s tale

Tana, our infectiously enthusiastic gardener has helped children harvest from our raised beds and use the crops to create delicious and colourful culinary creations this term. Working with interested and inquisitive children during lunchtime and small groups from P3 and P4 after break, Tana has encouraged children to explore planting, caring and harvesting of vegetables.

The soup created by Tana and the children from across various stages within the school was served during lunches today and was very popular! Thank you Tana for your great work with our pupils, thank you to the children who worked so hard to create the lovely soup and thanks also to our dedicated kitchen staff who helped cook the soup for today.
