Celebrating Chinese new year with The Food Education Company!


The children from Greenhead and Herdley Bank joined their friends at Henshaw C of E First School in Northumberland to also enjoy a Chinese New Year celebration.

Judith Reay, Executive Headteacher
said: "The children enjoyed a Chinese cookery demonstration led by Kat from The Food Education Company. This event supported the Healthy Schools standard held by all three schools and also promoted our cultural aspects of the curriculum."

The children also indulged in a Chinese lunch prepared by the Unit Managers who had decorated the hall with Chinese lanterns, flags and calendars.  Post Graduate Students from the University of Cumbria had helped the children design and make a fabulous Chinese dragon which paraded and danced throughout the day.

A great day was had by all!



"I just wanted to extend the warmest thanks to you for the workshops you facilitated. Your message about healthy eating came across loud and clear and your passion for your work is inspirational."
