Builders swapped the burger bar and sandwiches for a freshly prepared healthy meal at March Neale-Wade Community College on Thursday.

Yr 11 Btech students drew up a menu offering workmen, who are close completing work on the school’s new buildings, an array of main courses and sweets to choose from.

Each pupil was allocated a job ranging from preparing one of the main meals to dicing and chopping vegetables.

The tasty dishes ranged from toad in the hole to curry and cottage pie. Desserts included roly poly pudding and lemon meringue pie.

Teacher Zoe Clarke explained students on the BTech Level 2 course, which is the equivalent of a GCSE grade A to C, have to organise and run an event as part of their studies.

Thursday’s meal also saw the students having to overcome problems with equipment as the gas and electricity supplies kept failing, making it a more challenging task .

She said the students decided to provide a meal for the builders as a thank-you for all their hardwork on the new buildings, which are expected to be completed within the next few weeks.
