Our talented school chef cooks at the House of Commons
Our AWARD-WINNING school chef spent the day cooking for the Prime Minister at the House of Commons on Thursday 5th November.
Sam Ward was chosen as one of ten school chefs to represent the education catering industry during National School Meals week.
Sam said: "I was thrilled and delighted to be given such an amazing opportunity to work in the House of Commons.
"It was an amazing experience to be selected to represent your industry at the seat of government is really something very special and is one of the highlights of my career so far.
"I am so passionate about school food and love to see children eating fresh, healthy and tasty school lunches.
"The school has a holistic approach to the service we provide and everyone is connected, from the staff and governors to the parents and pupils who have been totally supportive of the journey that we have been on, this recognition is for them as much as it is for me."
Ahead of Sam's trip to the House of Commons, the school held a community lunch to celebrate National Roast Dinner Day. Pupils at Collaton St Mary enjoyed a roast dinner with all the trimmings and plenty of vegetables.
Four-year-old Lily Stone said: "A roast dinner is one of my favourite meals.
"The food at school is tasty and healthy. If you don't eat healthy you'll be poorly” said Corey Blackler.
