National Picnic Week is an annual event in the UK held in the last week in June every year since 2010 and celebrates everything there is about the great tradition of picnicking. 

This year, Food Technology teacher, Mrs Cowell, invited pupils to enter two inter-house competitions.  Pupils had the option to bake a set of six scones or design a new sandwich.

Mrs Cowell, was pleased with the entries that came in on Wednesday and judged Anna H in Year 7 as her winner.  Anna won on 'flavour' and takes home an Amazon voucher.  In second place was Year 8's Jane W whose scones Mrs Cowell said had a 'fantastic appearance'. In third was Year 7's Wiktoria C with her 'great all rounder' scones.  

Congratulations and commiserations to all the worthy contestants.   

The scones were sold at lunchtime and the £15 raised will be donated to the Year 7's nominated charity, BabyBeat. 

Well done to Jessica D in Year 7 with her shrimp spread, avocado, cheese and lemon dressed lettuce creation on wholemeal toasted bread. 

Jessica takes home a £5 Amazon voucher and some sweets for her fantastic effort.
