Congratulations Westfield Infant School on achieving the Food For Life Gold Award! We were very excited today to be the first school in Leicestershire and one of only twenty in the country to receive this award.
We had a lovely celebration assembly followed by a surprise whole school picnic. During assembly we had lots of special visitors to help us celebrate. We sang healthy songs and looked at photographs of the wonderful things we have done to achieve this award. We remembered our farm trips, the work of the Eco Warriers, the SNAG, the cooking club, our class gardening plots, healthy school week and the huge achievements of the kitchen and lunch time staff which has allowed us to achieve the healthy, relaxed and enjoyable lunchtimes that pupils have every day. Next we cut the golden celebration cake which was very exciting. A special thank you to Mrs Coleman for making this wonderful cake for us and for making 300 little cakes.
We were so lucky to have great weather to enjoy our picnic. Every child had a celebration cake and enjoyed chatting to their friends and listening to the music on the field.
Well done to all the staff, governors, parents/carers and most importantly the pupils whose hard work has made this possible! This award is an achievement for the Westfield Infant School Community and we should all be very proud!
