Pupils at a West Berkshire primary school are set to be treated to fine dining from now on after their new £450,000 kitchen was completed.
West Berkshire Council invested the money to replace the kitchen at St Mark’s Primary School in Cold Ash.
The old kitchen was not suitable for demand after the introduction of free school meals for all pupils up to Year 2, meaning an upgrade was required.
And it has already been given the thumbs up by pupils after the first meal of spaghetti bolognese, with one saying “it’s cool in there!”.
Headteacher Sue Ball said: “We are delighted with our superb new facilities.
“Healthy eating is such a vital part of a child’s everyday life, and it’s fantastic that with our new kitchen we can support our pupils in enjoying their food and developing good food habits.”
Lynne Doherty, the council’s executive member for children and young people added: “The provision of a modern, new kitchen at St Mark’s Primary School is part of the council’s commitment to investing £70million in school buildings.”
