Healthy eating at Ysgol Saltney Ferry

Published: 26/06/2015

Primary school pupils at Ysgol Saltney Ferry have been embracing healthy eating. The school recently held a series of healthy eating events, culminating in a healthy lunch competition, which was judged by Flintshire County Council’s school meals service. The children had been tasked with drawing and designing a healthy packed lunch. The winning pupils (one from each year) recently enjoyed eating the healthy lunch that they had each designed, and which was provided for them by the school meals service, in the dining hall at Ysgol Saltney Ferry. The winners were Ellie Colecliffe, aged 4; Jayden Reaney, aged 6; Angie Thomas, aged 7; Ellie Kirby, aged 8; Hannah Butler, aged 9; Jazmine March, aged 9 and Ryan Evans, aged 11. Deputy Leader, Councillor Bernie Attridge, said: “Well done to all the school children at Ysgol Saltney Ferry for embracing healthy eating and congratulations in particular to all the winners. Their winning meals looked great and I hope that they enjoyed eating their winning menus!” Ysgol Saltney Ferry headteacher, Charlotte Luke, said: It was the children themselves who initially said that they wanted to further promote healthy eating awareness across the school. We have really appreciated the support from Laura England working with each class and it has been lovely to see the children so enthusiastic about eating fruit and vegetables!
