A Rainham school is celebrating after getting a new food technology room
A Rainham school finally has a new food technology room after a year of fundraising.
Whybridge Junior School decided to get the new room after asking pupils what they would like at the school.
So Whybridge decided to get active! Through several fundraising events organised by the Friends of Whybridge parent group they secured enough funds to install the kitchen.
The children and staff at the school were excited and could not wait to see what the room would look like and wanted to get cooking immediately.
Nielen Prince, deputy headteacher at the school, said the children were excited to make use of the facility and said it was important for schools to teach real life skills.

Mr Prince said: “The new room is fantastic and has added a new dimension to the school. It has also increased parent involvement within the school and definitely been a worthwhile project.
