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.

The school celebrated the launch by inviting parents and members of the school community to join them. They also tasted a variety of cupcakes made by the pupils.

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.

“The pupils absolutely love it and it has also given us the opportunity to get our local secondary involved with helping our pupils with their baking skills.”
