Primary school children have been cooking up a storm in new kitchen
Children at Aldershot’s Park Primary School have been given a key ingredient in their learning in the form of a new kitchen area.
Since returning to the school in the south of the town for the new academic year, the pupils have been able to learn how to make dishes such as apple crumble and tomato pasta as they are taught basic cooking skills on two afternoons a week.
The kitchen area was installed using funds from Rushmoor Voluntary Services and items donated from Kitchen Kiosk shop in Aldershot’s Wellington shopping centre. It was designed to be a bright area specifically for the children to learn these skills.
The facility replaced another in a different area of the school that was deemed unsuitable for use.
Headteacher Kate Steven said: “It is so important that the children learn to cook, as it is a vital life skill. The children are enjoying using the new kitchen and have already made some delicious apple crumbles.”
The head thanked Rushmoor Voluntary Services and Kitchen Kiosk for their donations to add an extra element to the children’s education.
