Pupils at Seven Hills Primary School are now able to cook up a storm in their new kitchen.

Last month saw the grand opening of the new Diners Club kitchen and cafe. which kicked off with a speech from headteacher Mr Richard Catheral, who thanked the Friends of Seven Hills for their hard work raising funds to support the learning of the children and the facilities at school.

Thanks was also given to Karl Surtees who carried out the work and Mrs Wigglesworth, who founded and, up until her retirement, had overseen the club’s activities.

The club is run weekly and it allows the children to prepare and cook a meal for their parents or guardian and invited guests from the school community.

The after school Cooking Club also use the facilities of the new kitchen on a weekly basis.

Leanne Cork, chair of the Friends of Seven Hills, said: “The children were filled with enthusiasm to be working in the new kitchen, learning new skills and having fun.

“Over the coming year children from all year groups will have the chance to build their confidence and learn many new skills while working in the new kitchen environment in small groups and return to their classroom with fresh enthusiasm and excitement for their learning.

“It really is a welcome addition and very valuable resource to the children at Seven Hills Primary School.”
