Shipley CE Primary School are delighted to unveil their new ‘learning kitchen’. At the official opening of the new food technology facility, the Headteacher and Chair of Friends of Shipley School (FOSS) were joined by Josie Philips, retired Shipley school welfare officer, and Sarah Campbell who kindly donated the kitchen to the school. Two cookers and a fridge freezer were purchased by FOSS through fundraising and help from our local Buck Barn Co-op community donations.
Margaret Henderson, a former midday meals supervisor at the school, and Bob Philips, who was the youngest child to arrive at Shipley School during the war as an evacuee from London, also took part in the opening ceremony.
Once our VIPs had pulled the ribbon to open the new kitchen, families and villagers celebrated together with tea and cake, sponsored by Buck Barn Co-op and parents. We raised a whopping £127. What an amazing project giving the children an area where they can learn to cook and bake.
