Pizza the action

14th September 2007 at 01:00
Graeme High in Falkirk is one of a number of schools celebrating British Food Fortnight, which runs from September 22 to October 7. In its case, the celebration has been given a Scottish-Italian twist, through running an Enterprising Pizza Challenge for P7 pupils in its cluster schools, and asking S2 pupils to research, sample and use healthy Italian-inspired ingredients to create a healthy pasta dish.

Senior pupils in S5-6 are to prepare and serve a gala dinner for 100 guests in a marquee donated by a benefactor. They will be working under professional chef Mark Heirs, who is attached to the home economics department for British Food Fortnight.

Ideas generated by the event include:

* adoption of Mark Heirs to work long-term with the school;

* establishment of an after-school class for pupils to work with a chef from Forth Valley College;

* lunchtime food classes for pupils interested in different aspects of food;

* and the development of better links with their cluster primaries, following the success of the Enterprising Pizza Challenge this year.
