Eaton Bray Lower School
Posted on June 4, 2010
Having grown and eaten our own produce for lunch, we have now extended the self-sufficiency life style! We planted our orchard in the autumn term 2009 with a range of fruit trees. More recently, we enrolled three new pupils. The general election to decide on their names has not yet taken place. They are, of course, chickens! The children will be eating their eggs for lunch and then the School Council are hoping to receive donations from parents for the remaining eggs. The proceeds will be used for the upkeep of the chickens so that the children have fi rst hand experience of self-financing projects.
Our year fours won an Edenfoods competition. The prize was a cooking demonstration.
The children were able to ask questions about the ingredients, to learn how to prepare and cook them and fi nally what they tasted like. So we hope to have developed and encouraged some self suffi cient, financially successful, voting, locally sourced chefs of the future!
