French market c’est mag­nifique

Lennox Herald - - SOCIALIST STANCE -

Gar­tocharn Pri­mary cel­e­brated the end of their French week with a food market.

Pri­mary 6/7 hosted the event with the help of a chef from the Fin­nieston Restau­rant in Glas­gow, Flo­rian, who helped them pre­pare tra­di­tional French food, such as cuisses de grenouille and es­car­got - frogs legs and snails.

Pupils were in­vited to the market one class at a time to‘ spend’ eu­ros that they had been pro­vided with.

The pupils who ran the market ex­pe­ri­enced or­gan­is­ing an event, giv­ing change, fol­low­ing price lists, serv­ing cus­tomers, host­ing and man­ning the stall, in­clud­ing their very own crepe sta­tion.

Head teacher John McDon­ald, said: “The market was mag­nifique. Very well or­gan­ised. There were in­ter­est­ing things to taste and I re­ally en­joyed try­ing the frogs legs and snails.”

Pri­mary 6 pupil, Char­lie Hag­garty, was pleased there was plenty food for ev­ery­one to try and other pupils said it felt like a “real market as you had the choice of pick­ing what you wanted to try”.
