Children from Morden Primary School Year Four today took part in Pancake Day fun and learning with chef lecturers from South Thames College's new Hospitality and Catering Academy.
The event promotes basic food skills and healthy eating – learning to cook can be fun.
The highlight of the day was making and flipping pancakes with the College's chef lecturers. Pupils also took part in a pancake race and pancake tossing.
Judging the races, Andrew Pronger, Acting Head of Morden Primary, said: "This has been a great day with South Thames College. The chefs demonstrated how easy it was to create delicious food that doesn't have to be unhealthy. I hope that days like this will keep our pupils interested in cooking – as a life skill and maybe as something to study further."
Congratulations to students Mahalia Wallace and Sofia Silvekle for winning a prize in designing a poster for the Stop Smoking Service.
Councillor Jim Maddan presented the certificates and congratulated them on their hard work on this important topic. Level 3 Art & Design student Mahalia said “I’m really pleased with the work we did and hope it makes an impact to encourage people to stop smoking”.
The Wandsworth Stop Smoking Campaign developed by Wandsworth Council has a good success in helping people stop for good. The Stop Smoking Service have supported the college for the past four years.
South Thames College continues to celebrate the achievements of learners and the staff who support them. The latest presentation ceremony, where winners and participants of various national and local competitions and events are recognised, was led by Deputy Principal Janet Smith.
