Special guests open High Spen School's new kitchens

High Spen Primary School welcomed three very special guests on Wednesday, 1st April to open its new kitchen.

Newcastle Vipers David Longstaff, Derek Campbell and Rob Wilson, representing the Vipers Community Foundation, a registered charity promoting healthy lifestyles to improve academic achievement, officially cut the ribbon for the new facility.

The event formed part of the school’s healthy lifestyle week, aimed to encourage exercise and healthy eating for both school pupils and their parents.The school has already reported an increase in its school meals uptake since the new kitchen was completed, and the facility allows chefs to provide a wider range of food.

Children at the school already help to grow food at the local community garden, a move which cuts food miles and helps reduce damage to the environment.
