Pupils shine in competition
The John Wallis Church of England Academy in Ashford is one of only six schools to make it through to the final of the Kent is Delicious food competition, which will take place tomorrow (Friday) in the Why Farming Matters tent at the Kent County Show.
Held in partnership with the Diocese of Canterbury’s Communities and Partnerships Framework, the Kent Agricultural Society (KCAS), Produced in Kent, NFU Swale and Whitehead Monckton Solicitors, the aim of the competition is to raise children’s awareness of the quality and importance of local, seasonal produce.
John Wallis pupils impressed with their entry of a Medley of Crumble Pies, using all locallygrown fruit, including rhubarb picked fresh from one of the teacher’s gardens.
The pupils will now have to cook their pudding for a panel of judges comprising five representatives of the farming and food producing community in Kent.
