CORPUS Christi Primary School held their very own “Come Dine with Me” event last month.

A “Nourish to Flourish” family cooking afterschool club ran for five weeks prior to the event.

Recipes over the sessions touched upon food from different parts of the world and celebrated the cultural diversity in the school.

At the event, children invited their favourite staff member from the school to be on the judging panel and taste their menu.

Vicky Kytzia, principal teacher, told the Post: “What a way to finish the school year. All of our families were incredible and showcased excellent culinary skills. By attending our cooking club, our children are developing great skills for the future by linking the learning to application of skills to various jobs and careers.”

Colette Brown, a parent and Nourish to Flourish member, added: “It was great meeting new people, and everyone was so happy cooking together. Such a happy, positive atmosphere. Great food and great company.”

The school ran the cooking club after they were awarded £2,000 from Education Scotland’s Food For Thought grant.

The money enabled them to create a partnership with Kaleyard (Glasgow’s first non-profit social enterprise cook school).

Sharron McEwan, depute head teacher said: “The cook club has been a wonderful experience for our pupils, families and staff. It has provided opportunity for our families to be actively engaged in their child’s learning and encouraged them to be more involved within our school community.”
