Broadford school cook wins top award
A cook at Broadford Primary School on Skye has been named the Highland Council’s Employee of the Year for 2018 after excelling in promoting healthy eating to youngsters.
Annette Burfoot, who has worked at the island school for 11 years, has also been praised for inspiring pupils to further educate in nutrition and healthy eating habits.
Highland Council’s catering services manager Sue Nield said: “Annette’s proactive role within her school is at the very heart of what our school meals are all about. Her relationship with staff and children is inspirational. With her encouragement, pupils are eating and enjoying a wide variety of foods.
Mrs Burfoot was also named as runner-up in the Scottish School Cook of the Year award earlier this year.
