Pupils savour a tasty menu

East Kilbride News - - CLUB NEWS - Colin Pater­son

Bel­lis­simo! That was the ver­dict of young­sters at Mur­ray Pri­mary School af­ter they en­joyed a taste of Italy.

A special Ital­ian-themed lunch was or­gan­ised by P7 pupils with the help of the school’s ca­ter­ing as­sis­tants.

The kids de­cided on the theme, cre­ated the foods to be in­cluded in the menu and car­ried out re­search on Italy as part of their project.

Char­ac­ters from South La­nark­shire Coun­cil’s Go Fresh Gang came along to sup­port the event.

There were empty plates and full bel­lies as hun­gry pupils en­joyed the tasty treats on of­fer.

Re­flect­ing on the suc­cess of the day, Mur­ray Pri­mary head teacher Irene Trem­ble ad­mit­ted the kids had a ball.

“The chil­dren loved it,” she told the News.

“All the P7 pupils were in­volved and they worked in part­ner­ship with their teach­ers and the ca­ter­ing staff to cre­ate the menu.

“They also pro­moted the day through­out the school, put to­gether a special dis­play and learned about healthy eat­ing and de­vel­oped their life skills.”

Ms Trem­ble con­tin­ued: “They also got the chance to learn about an­other coun­try and its cul­ture while there was Ital­ian mu­sic played in the back­ground dur­ing the lunch.

“There was a great buzz and a great at­mos­phere.”

The ques­tion now is where next for Mur­ray Pri­mary’s culi­nary Euro­pean Tour?

Ms Trem­ble added: “We had a na­tional Spain day re­cently so I think this is some­thing we could be do­ing more of.”
