Sil­ver ser­vice as stu­dents host the mayor

Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS NEWS - RHI­AN­NON MCDOWALL

IT was ser­vice with a smile when stu­dents at the King’s school pre­pared and served din­ner to the Mayor.

The stu­dents at King’s Girls’ Di­vi­sion wel­comed Mayor of Cheshire East, Coun­cil­lor Hilda Gad­dum, to their sil­ver ser­vice event event.

It was the cul­mi­na­tion of a week-long course where the Year 10 pupils learned about all the de­mands of an in­dus­trial kitchen, from buy­ing the best at a fair price and bal­anc­ing food groups, to sil­ver ser­vice, to health and safety among the hobs.

James Plum­ridge, who runs Chartwell’s Bring­ing the Fun Back in Food, which ran the course, said: “The food in­dus­try pro­vides a wide range of long term ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties with ex­cit­ing and cre­ative chal­lenges and for many of th­ese stu­dents it will also al­low them to find part time work es­pe­cially when they are at univer­sity. Our in­ten­sive food prepa­ra­tion course is de­signed to give them a ba­sic set of skills and whet their ap­petite to learn more.”

Coun Gad­dum said: “It was a won­der­ful night and a most en­joy­able and de­li­cious meal served with a smile.”

The event raised £300 for Visyon, a char­ity based in Con­gle­ton, which sup­ports young peo­ple with emo­tional prob­lems.
