Yesterday, Aiden and Ryan represented our school at the Examiner Schools Awards where they received a runner-up certificate for the Healthy Living Award.
We are extremely proud of the work undertaken at Joseph Norton to help our pupils maintain a healthy lifestyle. Over the last two years, the pupils have transformed the school’s catering facility to establish a healthy farm-to-table meal service that is organised and run by the pupils, for the pupils, with the support of two amazing instructors.
Pupils are now planting, growing and harvesting crops; looking after chickens, goats and pigs; planing, preparing and cooking healthy meals; before serving each other through the school’s family dining initiative.
The qualifications some of our pupils have achieved on the farm and in the kitchen are the icing on the cake! Well done everyone and thank you to those who represented the school at the awards ceremony.
