The Glorious Food Blog
As a result of the survey, it was decided that our main action for the project would be to have a healthy packed lunch competition.
Surprise, surprise, the EkoSkola Committee did not much like the idea of a bread maker or a pasta machine as prizes, when this was suggested by an EkoSkola teacher! (What’s exciting for a teacher does not seem to be so for a student.)
Therefore the students got researching and decided to go for three winners, winning a Dessert Bullet each. Apparently, Dessert Bullets are all the rage at the moment and so would make very good prizes. Two teachers would get a Grassy Hopper voucher.
It was also decided that we would invite an employee of the Grassy Hopper and the We Eat Responsibly! national coordinator to judge the entries. This would free up all staff to compete too. The ethos of the Grassy Hopper is very much on the lines of the We Eat Responsibly! Project, so we very much thought it would be a good idea to develop links.
We were overjoyed to see so many entries, and of such good quality. We feel that both students and staff did the project proud.
This is the valuable feedback we were given by the two judges, Ms Emmeline Schembri, and Ms Cynthia Caruana:
,Well done to the EkoSkola committee for organizing this wonderful initiative. Here are some ideas that we'd like to share.
We will use this feedback and the results of the survey to plan our next steps.
A big thank you goes to:
Here’s to learning more about responsible eating!
