Pupils get a taste for In­dian stud­ies

Macclesfield Express - - HEART OF THE COMMUNITY - DANIELLE ROPER

MARL­BOR­OUGH Pri­mary School pupils had a taste of In­dian cul­ture when they dined at an In­dian res­tau­rant, many for the first time.

Year 6 pupils vis­ited the Ben­gal Tiger Lily in Nether Alder­ley with their class teacher and as­sis­tant head­teacher Sarita Bai­ley as part of their learn­ing about Hin­duism.

They en­joyed a se­lec­tion of tra­di­tional In­dian food, as well as find­ing out how it was cooked.

Mrs Bai­ley said: “The chil­dren loved the food and wanted more.

“The res­tau­rant owner and chef, Ju­ber, was fan­tas­tic with them. He was so friendly and in­for­ma­tive.

“He gave them a korma dish which he made sure was mild but the chil­dren wanted to try the hot­ter food!”

Pop­padoms and naan bread were also on the menu and even those who had never tried In­dian food be­fore found some­thing they liked.

Mrs Bai­ley laughed: “The meal was very kindly of­fered as com­pli­men­tary by the res­tau­rant but the chil­dren were all putting their hands up for sec­onds!”

She added: “They all had a great time eat­ing with their friends and wrote in their re­ports about the day that they had had the best trip ever.”
