Citizenship Students give Year 7’s a Healthy Treat

Sampling tasty fruits at PTC

A group of our Year 11 Citizenship students came up with a great idea recently as the topic for their Citizenship campaign.  Ben Hart, Robert Lloyd, Calvin Clements and Sam Richards chose “Healthy Eating”.  They met with our Principal, David Kemp and put their idea to him.  Mr Kemp was impressed and supported their plans by organising a meeting for them with Dudley Catering.  At the meeting they discussed ideas, including a fruit and smoothie tasting session for Year 7’s.  Dudley Catering felt this was a great idea and offered to support the group with all they would need.  The session took place in the school canteen in February.  Year 7’s eagerly tried out delicious smoothies and fruit samples (some very exotic). The tasting session was a great success and as an outcome smoothies are now introduced on the school canteen menu and are selling very well.  It is intended that new fruits will also be on sale soon. 


The group are offering to support any students in Year 10 who may be interested in continuing this Citizenship project next year.  Please speak to Mrs Shaaban or Ben Hart in the first instance.  The group would also like to thank our catering staff for preparing such a delicious feast for the tasting session
