Pupils savour a tasty menu
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.”
