National Adopt a School Week 2018 review

Publish Date: March 12, 2018 Posted By: Rosanna Frost

THAT’S WHAT WE CALL HOSPITALITY

The industry shone last week across the UK when 80+ individuals delivered Adopt a School sessions. From Primary Schools to Colleges, Farms to Hotels, over 2200 children benefited from your expertise and knowledge. We cannot thank you enough. We know just how much planning, preparation and effort goes into each session so on behalf of all the team,
THANK YOU ALL, SO VERY MUCH.

Over 2200 children across the UK benefited from National Adopt a School Week (5th-9th March 2018)

Outdoor learning is an important part of Adopt a School and Yr 4 children from Swanage Primary were just some lucky ones to visit The Pig on the Beach in Studland, Dorset.

“Amazing”, “Fantastic”, “I loved it”, “Can’t wait for the next”, “I want to get more staff trained up to deliver Adopt a School”, “The children were incredible”, “The school were so supportive”…..just some of the comments those who delivered Adopt a School said of their experiences..

During the week of March 5th, children learned about cookery, front of house skills, gardening, healthy eating, taste buds, fish, seafood & pasta dishes, bread making skills, and much, much more …
“This is so much better than learning in a classroom”… Emily aged 8 years old.
